We are pleased to announce that SACOG will offer a free workshop on the Economic Census, provided by Andy Hait from the Economy-Wide Statistics Division of the U.S. Census Bureau.
This interactive workshop will explore the business data available from the U.S. Census Bureau and how you can use this information in economic development and other work. An overview of the monthly, quarterly, and annual business data available will be provided, focusing on the Census economic programs that provide information at the state, county, and local area levels. Workshop attendees will learn how they can use these data to better understand the economy of California and your local counties at the broad, ”big picture” level. They will also learn how they can uses these data at the “micro” level to help promote small business growth in your areas. Both of these segments will feature the two new editions of a new data tool (Census Business Builder: Small Business Edition and Regional Analyst Edition), which present key information tailored to these users.
Contact Tina Glover for any questions.
