Special Free-to-all APDU Webinars

November 02, 2016 3:00 pm EDT
This APDU Public Data University Webinar will focus on federal surveys that now include new items on certifications and licenses. Over a 7-year period, the Interagency Working Group on Expanded Measures of Enrollment and Attainment (GEMEnA) developed and validated survey items on the prevalence and key characteristics of these non-degree credentials.
March 02, 2016 3:00 pm EST

The 2020 Census and American Community Survey (ACS) face significant challenges in Congress, and data users outside of the nation's capital often ask if there's anything they can do to support these seminal Census Bureau programs. In fact, state and local voices have a great deal of credibility and influence with members of Congress and can play a key role in educating lawmakers about the importance of census and ACS data and the benefits to communities "back home."

The Census Project, a diverse coalition of census and ACS stakeholders spanning virtually every economic and social sector, has produced a Toolkit to help state and local organizations build coalitions in support of an accurate census and comprehensive, reliable ACS. The Association of Public Data Users (APDU) is partnering with The Census Project to unveil and explain the toolkit through this webinar.

Presenters:

  • Census Project Overview
    Phil Sparks, Co-Director, The Census Project
  • Presentation: "Supporting the Census and ACS: A Toolkit for Coalition-Building"
    Joan Naymark, Executive Director, MACS (Minnesotans for the American Community Survey)

Presentations and recordings of all webinars are available to APDU members in the APDU Members Area.
