They're talking recent censuses, and demographic info, but I thought some MoSGA members may be interested:

October 1, 2008 - 10a.m. or 2p.m.
Missouri Southern State University
Plaster Hall, room 303

Workshops cover: 2000 Census of Population and Housing, 2007 American Community Survey, and 2002 Economic Census

This 3-hour workshop will teach you how to access data from the 2000 Census of Population and Housing from the Census Bureau's American Factfinder webpage, the new 2007 data from the American Community Survey webpage, Population Estimates and Populations Projection data, the Economic Census, and other Census Bureau data. We will focus on data and maps that feature Joplin, Missouri.

This workshop will teach you how to:

* Gather 100% of the Census data and maps for the area around your home or business street address
* Gather economic data for your zip code or county or metropolitan area
