2013 Data User's Conference

Manipulating Census Data in ArcGIS Workshop
Presenter: Jim Castagneri



This hands-on session will place a heavy focus on practicing the skills of downloading and importing custom queries from American Factfinder into ArcGIS. Attendees will select a specific variable from American Factfinder and download it to their workstation. You will then format the data in Excel before importing it into ArcGIS for a specific level of Census geography. We will explore the ramifications of large Margins of Error for small geographies and discuss tips for avoiding the pitfalls associated with the American Community Survey sample size.
