2013 Poverty Data Is Coming. Are You Ready?

Those of us who like statistics know that it's getting to be that time of year - the time when the Census Bureau releases poverty figures from last year. As always, CHN has us covered - they are offering a webinar on September 11 to help everyone get up to speed on the best ways to use this data.

From our friends at CHN:
Get ready for the September 16 and 18 release of Census Poverty data with CHN’s annual webinar training, co-sponsored by Community Action Partnership. Join expert Jared Bernstein, former Chief Economist and Economic Advisor to Vice President Biden, to hear what the new data will likely show about poverty, income, health insurance and much more. You’ll also learn how you can access and utilize national, state, and local data. The training is free and all webinar registrants will receive timely follow-up information before and after the data is released. This training will be available on-demand. Be sure to register to receive all materials and updates.
