Have you ever wondered how to utilize open data but not sure where to begin? Do you feel like you don't have the skills to be a "data person"? This session is for you!
The Census Bureau, in collaboration with multiple federal agencies, is producing data on the social and economic effects of the coronavirus pandemic on American households and businesses through two experimental surveys: The Household Pulse Survey & the Small Business Pulse Survey, measuring the effects and changing conditions on our nation’s households and small businesses; providing high-frequency, detailed information on the impacts of the pandemic on our population and economy.
Special guest, Mikel Maron, will open up this session highlighting lessons on working with data from Mapbox's support to COVID-19 response, and sharing his experience on impactful community and humanitarian uses of open source and open data. Mikel is a co-founder of Humanitarian Open Street Maps (HOT) and leads the Community Team at Mapbox.
Followed by a hands-on training workshop using Tableau for visualizing curated data sets from the Household Pulse Survey, with our own Census Data Viz Experts— the team behind Census Bureau Tableau Public.
Learn about TOP's Data Curation Hub to find data sources relevant to the COVID-19 pandemic and walk away with tangible skills that can help you understand how to use and pull insights from open data!
NOTE: (Download Tableau Public to actively participate in the training component of this workshop, a data set link will be provided via email to attendees who RSVP to the session.)
