  • Series
Date and Time

October 20, 2014





Event Details

This class consist of eight webinars, for a total of 13 hours on census and related data bases, and how data can be downloaded and applied to tribal transportation planning. Each webinar is generally 1.5 hours presented in a lecture or video/webinar format. Webinars were recorded earlier in the year. The class material is presented so students can go to on-line data access sites on their own computers and learn how to find, download, and create reports to apply data to tribal transportation and planning issues. Students will complete a "report" on the data for a tribe they select that includes its meaning for transportation planning. At the end of the workshop there will be an evaluation of the workshop and a reflective essay on the value of this material to be completed by each participant.
