Notes
America is Changing – and so is the Census

The 2010 Census is upon us – what information is collected, and how do librarians locate and use the
data? The American Community Survey has replaced the Census “Long-Form” questionnaire, and will
provide annual updates of demographic data at the local level. This workshop will address key changes
in Census data products, formats and content, - as well as how to access information thru the Census
Bureau’s American Factfinder.

Ways to analyze, understand and use Census information, both within libraries and in serving the
community will be discussed. Participants will receive hands-on instruction, and case studies and
examples will be presented. An opportunity for participant questions and discussion is included.
