This webinar is for individuals looking to better understand the changing landscape of their communities. In particular, the webinar will teach participants how to visualize Census 2010 data and compare it to past estimates. It will help viewers answer questions about resource availabilities for changing racial/ethnic and linguistic populations. It will also explain in depth about how Census 2010 data relates to American Community Survey Estimates, the Census Bureau’s ongoing replacement of the now historic long-form of the Census. For the nerds in the bunch, we will discuss changes in geographies for which the Census collects its data. Attendees of this webinar will learn how to use HealthyCity.org to:
- Display Census 2010 data alongside public health, civic engagement, and other socioeconomic indicators.
- Map changes in population racial/ethnic composition since the last Census.
- Research areas where population characteristics changed substantially.
- Search for services and infrastructure that can support people in rapidly changing areas.
