19th Annual Summer Data Conference Set for Aug. 14
Omaha - The Nebraska State Data Center will present its 19th Annual Summer Data Conference, sponsored by the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO), on Thursday, Aug. 14, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Boys Town Conference Center, 14100 Crawford St.
Conference participants will learn how to access and use government economic statistics and population demographics. Session topics include:
* State and Local Population Trends;
* Getting Ready for the 2010 Census;
* American FactFinder Online Data Tool;
* Understanding Vital Statistics and Components of Population Change;
* GIS and Data Mapping Applications; and
* Information for Grant Writers and Data Users.
“Our audience is broad”, said David Drozd, conference organizer and research associate with UNO’s Center for Public Affairs Research (CPAR). “The conference is for anyone who uses government statistical information or demographics for business or anything else.”
Drozd said some people in attendance have little experience with statistical information or the Census Bureau while others come every year. Past attendees have included entrepreneurs, academics, librarians, non-profit business organizers, and local government officials, he said.
The registration fee includes materials, lunch and parking and is $50 if registered on or before Friday, Aug. 8, or $60 if registered after that date. Visit www.unomaha.edu/cpar for more information or to register online, or contact Melanie Kiper at 561.7585 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

UNO will celebrate its 100th anniversary beginning October 8, 2008. This celebration will recognize the partnership among the City of Omaha, its citizens and UNO to build a vibrant and dynamic community. The centennial theme is “UNO: Central To Our City Since 1908.” This theme acknowledges the past contributions of UNO to the community and sets the stage for great things to come.
UNO, inaugurated in 1968, emerged from the Municipal University of Omaha, established in 1931, which grew out of the University of Omaha founded in 1908. For Centennial information, go to http://www.unomaha.edu/100/.
