AUTHORS: David Kraiker, Data Dissemination & GIS Specialist, U.S. Census Bureau

ABSTRACT: This presentation/workshop will explain how the Census Bureau classifies "place", allows county governments to create "census-designated places" - big or small - and then how American Community Survey data are released for places. The presentation will delve into the American Factfinder portal to illustrate how citizens and users may obtain population, economic, social and demographic data for CDPs and their accompanying shapefiles. It will also explain the logic of population thresholds, and why some data might be more readily available than others. Presenter will walk through the process of pulling data from AFF. The audience is invited to bring a device to follow along and practice searching for data.
