The Power of Data: Using Census & Immigration Data for Grant Proposals and More
Description: There is a wealth of data about immigration and diverse populations, but how can you access it?
This hands-on workshop will give you practice using web-based tools from the US Census Bureau and Dept. of Homeland Security to answer questions such as:
- What countries today’s immigrants come from
- What languages they speak
- Whether they have become naturalized as US citizens or are eligible to do so
…and much, much more!
Bring your own laptop* and get immediate practice using these tools.
