On Friday, Mar. 7, 2014, several county and non-profit staff attended a training session conducted by a representative of the United States Census Bureau.  At the computer-based training, participants navigated through the U.S. Census Bureau web site and were taught characteristics of the Decennial Census, American Community Survey and Population Estimates data programs so they could choose the right program for the kind of household or housing information they desired.  Participants also became familiar with American FactFinder, the Census Bureau's primary data-access tool.  Hands-on exercises inside American FactFinder and other data-access tools helped participants apply their newly-gained knowledge to work-related data searches.
