Downloading and Mapping census variables in QGIS

Census data provides valuable insights into population demographics, housing characteristics, and more. In this workshop, you'll learn how to access and download census data, and then map it in QGIS, a free and open-source GIS software, to visualize patterns and trends. By the end of the workshop, you'll be able to create informative maps that can enhance your research or decision-making processes.

No prior experience with GIS or census data is required. RSVP is required for this workshop
