Headwaters Economics brings together data from a variety of different sources to create reports about socioeconomic and demographic status by geography. We make this data available via free online tools and data visualizations from the geographic scale of the entire U.S. down to individual census tracts. During this presentation we will show you how to use our online tools, but, more importantly, we will explain the relevance of the different variables presented. We will explain the different geographic levels at which the data are available. We will show you some products we have created where we married the data to maps and allowed users to interact with it. Participants will leave with an understanding of how they can get their hands on the data, what different kinds of information is available and might be relevant to their work, and how that data can be linked to geographic information.
