NE Data Conference Coming in August

UNO’s Center for Public Affairs Research at will present its 25th Annual Nebraska Data Conference on Tuesday, August 19th.

David Drozd, Research Coordinator for CPAR, says individuals from state and local government, as well as non-profits and organizations that deal with grants, make up the largest portion of attendees. 

He says this year, conference attendees will hear about the latest Nebraska population trends.  Drozd says there is a focus on aging as well as poverty this year. 

He says they will also provide breakout sessions during the conference.

"We do trainings on the Census Bureau’s online data portal and how to use it.  We also have a specific focus this year on the mapping of data so we will go over some online as well as software that can be used to map data because a picture really is worth 1,000 words when we try to explain things.  And we are also going to talk a little bit about resources we have at libraries.”

This year’s Nebraska Data Conference is offered both in person and online.
