Keeping up with our constantly evolving communities is essential to good planning, and socio-economic data is a vital resource in this endeavor. This webinar will provide a refresher course on the Census and other publicly available data, and show attendees the new capabilities that this information can bring to the planning practice. Charles Rynerson, from the Population Research Center at Portland State University, will provide an overview of the U.S. Census as well as the Oregon Census State Data Center, a cooperative program between the states and the Census Bureau that was created in 1978 to make data available locally to the public through a network of state agencies, universities, libraries, and regional and local governments. Lauren Nolan, from the Woodstock Institute, will educate attendees on some of the lesser known data sets available to planners, including what’s available from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC).
