Workshop - Accessing, Analyzing, and Visualizing IPUMS Data

Brought to you by leading experts in data science and visualization, this workshop will teach you to extract, analyze, and visualize your data. 

A data revolution is transforming social policy research. We are awash in large data measuring all parts of our lives and society. Researchers and analysts are increasingly tasked with acquiring, analyzing, and effectively communicating results distilled from these massive data sources. In this full-day workshop, you will learn how to acquire and analyze data from IPUMS, one of the largest population databases in the world, and effectively communicate your results through data visualization.

Taught by experts in the demographic data and visualization fields—José Pacas, Dave Van Riper, and Jonathan Schwabish—this workshop will provide you with the insights required to unlock your use of IPUMS products and the skills needed to plan and develop IPUMS data visualization. Through lectures and hands-on exercises, instructors will guide you through key aspects of acquiring, preparing, and analyzing IPUMS data; introduce you to data visualization best practices and strategies; and help you create your own IPUMS data visualizations.
