Help! I’m an Accidental Government Information Librarian presents... Census Microdata: What, Why and Where

  • October 13, 2020
  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
  • Zoom
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.   Heard of microdata but not sure what they are or when they might be useful?  This session will provide an overview to answer these questions and introduce a couple of freely available tools for getting them:  the Census Bureau’s new mdat tool within data.census.gov, and IPUMS USA, a tool from the Minnesota Population Center.  While the data may be of most interest to advanced researchers, librarians may want a general sense of what microdata are and what the tools can do.  We will meet together online this week on Tuesday, Ocotber 13th from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. (Eastern). Please RSVP for the session using this link: https://tinyurl.com/grssession99.   Presenter: Michele Hayslett has been a data librarian for almost twenty years.  Having received much of her early training through the Census Bureau and North Carolina State Data Center, Census data is one of her specialties and she’s witnessed changes over three decennial Censuses now.  She works constantly with a variety of tools to pull data from numerous Census surveys in multiple formats.  She is a past president of NCLA’s Government Resources Section.   We will use Zoom for the live session. Information on testing and accessing the session will be made available when you register. The session will be recorded and available after the live session, linked from the NCLA GRS web page at https://nclaonline.org/Help!-Webinars.
