The New Poverty Data: Using it to Show What Works (and What Doesn't) to Reduce Poverty
CHN's annual webinar training on the use of the new Census Bureau data about poverty, income, health insurance, and much more: you'll learn what it’s likely to show and how you can get and use national, state, and local data. As a participant, you will get prepared for the September 16 and 18 release of data from 2013, helping you to find out whether poverty is decreasing, rising, or stuck in the same place. You'll also learn about many other questions the Census surveys answer related to income, educational attainment, housing costs, health coverage, SNAP use, and more. All webinar registrants will receive timely follow-up information before and after the data is released.
