Using the new poverty, income and health insurance data: a practical guide


August 17, 2017

On September 12 and 14, the Census Bureau will release its annual poverty, income and health insurance survey data. That’s why on Thursday, September 7th, 3:00 – 4:30 pm ET, CHN will host a handy webinar to show you how to use the local, state, and national findings. You’ll get brilliant predictions and insights about trends. You’ll learn about the wealth of information available, and how it can help make your case for public investments in vital programs. Whether your organization wants to comment on the findings at the time of release or use them all year long, this webinar will give you the tools you need.
The presenters of the webinar include Jared Bernstein, famed economist seen/read often on MSNBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and his blog On the Economy, and Senior Fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. He will preview what the data is likely to show, and the policy implications.

Following Jared, CHN’s own Executive Director Deborah Weinstein will provide practical information about how to get the information you need (local, state, and national) from the Census survey data, and how to use it to advocate for programs and fight cuts.

Ellen Teller, Director of Government Relations at the Food Research and Action Center, will be the moderator, deftly ensuring that the speakers answer as many of your questions as possible.

We hope you’ll join on us on Thursday, September 7th, 3:00 – 4:30 pm ET for this important (and free!) webinar.
