Hands-on Census class by Hacks/Hackers in Boston
Arthur Bakis from the Boston office of the US Census Dept will conduct a hands-on class for reporters and others on March 22. He will show people how they can unearth important facts and trends being released by the Census for the nation and Massachusetts. The Census is in the middle of releasing decennial data, as well as information from the American Community Survey (and learn what the difference is).
Arthur has been with the Census Bureau for 11 years. He serves as Information Services Specialist and is responsible for disseminating census data to the public and spreading awareness about available demographic and economic data and data products throughout New England.
