Videos demonstrating how to access and utilize various census data sets are featured in the U.S. Census Bureau’s Census Academy, an essential online training hub for data users of all skill levels.
At Census Academy, novice data users can improve their familiarity with census data. More advanced data users can sharpen their analytic skills. Some of the Census Academy assets include:
“Data gem” videos that detail short “how-to” procedures for utilizing key data tools
Courses that help users learn at their individual pace and offer support for data analysis tools (e.g. crunching census data with Microsoft Excel and running statistical analyses in the R statistical package)
Webinars provide a chance to learn from and interact with the Bureau’s data experts
The Census Academy also provides an opportunity to receive customized training on specific topics, simply by inviting a data expert to your office for training, free of charge. For more information, check out the Census Academy website.
