Event: APDU Workshop Series: Making the Best of the 2020 Census

May 3, 2021 1146

Join the APDU for a free virtual workshop series that includes town halls (April 14-May12), trainings (June 16, August 18 and September 15) and office hours (biweekly beginning June 9). The event will be facilitated by:

  • Amy O’Hara, Research Professor, Massive Data Institute, Georgetown University
  • Danah Boyd, Principal Investigator, Microsoft Research & Founder, Data & Society

Accurate statistics about 2020 will rely on much more than the decennial census data collection. Developing reliable data will require an understanding of challenges resulting from the pandemic, combined with greater use of non-traditional sources like administrative records. The solutions to these problems will impact how data is gathered going forward for a variety of purposes: education, housing, economic development, public health, and more.

Register today for this series of town hall events and trainings. During this workshop series you will learn more about the quality of the data that state and local leaders rely on and how you can improve and supplement it.
