ACS Data for Small Geographic Areas and Population Subgroups (July 10, 2013)

The American Community Survey (ACS) provides a continuous stream of updated information for states and local areas, and is revolutionizing the way we use data to understand our communities. In this webinar, Tim Gilbert from the U.S. Census Bureau provided an overview of ACS data for small geographic areas and population subgroups. Laura Speer, Director of the KIDS COUNT project at the Annie E. Casey Foundation, discussed how the Foundation uses ACS data to promote the well-being of children across the states. And Frances Deviney, Texas KIDS COUNT Director and Senior Research Associate for the Center for Public Policy Priorities, provided some examples of ACS data applications for local areas.
