Help! I’m an Accidental Government Information Librarian presents… Census Microdata: What, Why and Where (North Carolina Library Association)
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.
