The webinar will show participants how to access new data and online resources from the 2016 American Community Survey.

Embargo subscribers will have access to these statistics beginning Tuesday, Sept. 12, at 12:01 a.m. EDT.
The American Community Survey provides a wide range of important statistics about people and housing for every community in the nation. This survey is the only source of local estimates for most of the 40 topics it covers for communities across the nation. For example, it produces statistics for language, education, commuting, employment, mortgage status and rent, as well as income, poverty and health insurance. The one-year statistics will be available for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, every congressional district, and all counties and places with populations of 65,000 or more.
Thursday, Sept. 7, 2017, at 1 p.m. EDT
Tyson Weister, Outreach and Education Branch, American Community Survey Office, U.S. Census Bureau
Dan Velez, Public Affairs Specialist, Public Information Office, U.S. Census Bureau
The webinar will consist of a simultaneous audio conference and online presentation. Attendees will be able to ask questions following the presentation.
