Heard of microdata but not sure what they are or when they might be useful?  This session will provide an overview to answer these questions and introduce a couple of freely available tools for getting them:  the Census Bureau’s new mdat tool within data.census.gov, and IPUMS USA, a tool from the Minnesota Population Center.  While the data may be of most interest to advanced researchers, librarians may want a general sense of what microdata is and what the tools can do.
