Inclusive Data: Census 2020 Data in a Changing America

Inclusive Data: Census 2020 Data in a Changing America

What's in the 2020 Census and other data from the US Census Bureau and how can they affect lives around the US?

This workshop digs into how Census data and the US population are changing, with a focus on data and impacts related to historically marginalized groups. It is open to anyone (faculty, staff, student, community member) and will focus on translating sometimes arcane research methodology and findings to help non-specialists better understand Census data and its impact.

This workshop is part of a new series on Inclusive Data. Each topic (starting with the Census) will be featured in two workshops - one on key characteristics and impacts of quantitative data on the topic, and another immediately following it with a hands-on demo using related data to explore issues of diversity, equity and inclusion. For questions or additional information, please contact Data Education Coordinator Nathaniel Porter (ndporter@vt.edu).
