Census Bureau: Webinar on Race, Tribal, Hispanic & Ancestry Group Statistics

The U.S. Census Bureau will hold a technical webinar in advance of the release of two embargoed data products: the Selected Population Tables and the American Indian and Alaska Native Tables from the 2011-2015 American Community Survey. The webinar will be July 10, the day before the embargo, which starts July 11 for public release July 13, 2017.

The webinar will show participants how to access data through American FactFinder for American Indian and Alaska Native tribes, as well as for hundreds of detailed race, Hispanic origin, tribal and ancestry populations at multiple levels of geography, including census tracts. These tables allow for an in-depth look at populations beyond those covered in the annual one-year and five-year American Community Survey products. These tables are released every five years and are an update to the inaugural 2006-2010 data tables.

Embargo subscribers will have access to these statistics beginning Tuesday, July 11, at 10 a.m. EDT. The statistics will be available for public release at 12:01 a.m. EDT on Thursday, July 13. Wire and distribution services are prohibited from distributing embargoed news stories and data files to subscribers before the public release date and time. For more information, see the Census Bureau’s embargo policy.
