    Join NCOA as we hear from experts from the U.S. Census Bureau as we explore visualization tools to ensure that all older adults and adults with disabilities are counted.

    Webinar Description

    Since 2019, NCOA has partnered in various capacities with the U.S. Census Bureau, to ensure that all older adults and adults with disabilities are counted. Our partnership has included messaging, outreach, and toolkits built specifically to inform the aging network on how to fairly and accurately participate in the U.S. Census. This virtual training continues our partnership and the importance of data.  Census subject matter experts will provide an overview of Census data tools that contribute to a more holistic picture of how individuals are aging in the U.S. Hosted by NCOA’s Equity in Aging Collaborative, subject matter experts from the U.S. Census Bureau will discuss demographics related to older adults, to include: household composition of grandparents living with and responsible for their grandchildren; and data sets within the intersecting topics of aging, disability and poverty. Statistics like these inform researchers, educators, advocates, and policy makers, and can help us work together to prepare for demographic shifts among older adults in the coming decade. The webinar will conclude with a brief demonstration on how to access data tables using data.census.gov and Q&A.
