Inform. Connect. Support.
The Government Resources Section of the North Carolina Library Association welcomes you to a series of webinars designed to help us increase our familiarity with government information. All are welcome because government information wants to be free.
Are you ready? Starting in September 2019, the most current Economic Census will start being released. With this Census, there are regular changes in geographic definitions and industry classifications, but the big news is the introduction of the North American Product Classification Systems (NAPCS) and new distribution method. The 2017 Economic Census will be one of the first Census titles released only on the new data.census.gov website, since no new programs have been added to American FactFinder since July 1, 2019. Our time together will be spent going over the basics of what the Economic Census has to offer as well these upcoming changes.
We will meet together online on Thursday, September 19th from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. (Eastern). Please RSVP for the session using this link: https://tinyurl.com/grssession89
