Telling the American Story with the U.S. Census: Teaching with Real Data (Association of College and Research Libraries)

Census data tells the American story. By exploring how the United States has changed—and is changing—students and researchers are not only able to examine large demographic and geographic shifts, but also intimate personal histories and changing neighborhoods. Professor Rebecca C. Hyde shows how students can tell these stories and more using Social Explorer, a data visualization and mapping tool currently enhancing over 350 research libraries in the U.S. With the census in the news daily, this is a timely webinar for all data and social science librarians, and for anyone interested in examining the patterns that emerge from massive, longitudinal data sets.
