Using Economic Statistics Workshop

Angeles Ortega-Moore

Most people are familiar with the Decennial Census which provides the U.S. population counts required by Article I, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution. However, the Census Bureau also conducts a number of additional surveys, which offer tremendous insight into social and economic activity across industries and communities.

DABE is partnering with the Census Bureau to offer a half-day training on how to use these economic statistics. This workshop will feature information on the Economic Census, Quarterly Workforce Indicators, and Industry Focus. Major topics will include the Census of Retail Trade, Service Industries, Manufacturing, and Minority-owned Businesses.

This will be an interactive workshop where participants should bring their own laptop to use during the training. All participants must RSVP by Tuesday, June 4th and will be required to show a government issued photo ID and undergo an airport-like security check at the Curtis Street entrance. The training starts at 9:00am and attendees are asked to show up by 8:45am to allow time to go through security and find the training room.

Angeles Ortega-Moore is a Senior Partnership Specialist with the U.S. Census Bureau. She has been working in this capacity for nearly 4 years and will be conducting this workshop.
