NCompass Live: American FactFinder: the Census Bureau's online data retrieval tool - Recorded Online Session 


This session will show you how to navigate the Census Bureau online data portal called American FactFinder. The system has recently been totally redesigned and has several new features. We'll give you tips and shortcuts for obtaining the data you need. American FactFinder is the key place to retrieve information from the 2010 and 2000 Censuses, annual socio-economic data from the American Community Survey, and a variety of other commonly used Census data sources. Presenter: David Drozd, Research Coordinator, Center for Public Affairs Research (CPAR), Nebraska State Data Center.
