An archive of this webinar is available here.

Using the New Poverty Data

Wednesday, September 9, 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. Eastern time

The annual Census Bureau data about poverty, income, and health insurance will be released on September 16 and 17.  There is increasing recognition that poverty is stubborn, entrenched, and damaging.  There is also a growing body of evidence about what works to reduce poverty.

Learn how to get accurate information about your state and community – and how to use it to press for real solutions.


Jared Bernstein, Senior Fellow, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities

Jared, formerly Chief Economist and Economic Advisor for Vice President Biden and the Obama White House, and now a prominent writer and commentator on economic issues, will predict likely poverty and income trends in the new data.  And show us what works to reduce poverty – and what doesn’t.

Deborah Weinstein, Executive Director, Coalition on Human Needs

Debbie has been providing practical, hands-on tips on using the Census survey data for a long time.  Each year, she works to streamline the info so you can find and use poverty, income, health insurance, education, disability, race/ethnicity, employment and other data for the nation, and for states and communities.

The webinar will give you step-by-step instructions to find the information you need, including trends over time and comparisons to other states.  All registrants will be sent those instructions and follow-up help when the Census Bureau releases its new reports.
