·         Start time: 2:00 p.m. (Eastern)
·         Duration: 60 minutes
·         Speaker: Andy W. Hait is an economist and serves as the Data Product and Data User Liaison in the Economy-Wide Statistics Division at the U.S. Census Bureau. With over 28 years of service at the Census Bureau, Hait oversees the data products and tools and coordinates data user training for the economic census and the Census Bureau’s other economic survey programs. He is also the lead geographic specialist in the Economic Programs Directorate. Hait holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from Syracuse University and has a Masters Certificate in Project Management from George Washington University.
·         Learning outcomes: The U.S. Census Bureau provides a wealth of data that entrepreneurs and small business owners can use in their business and marketing plans, but access to this information can often be difficult for users not familiar with Census Bureau data programs and tools. This webinar will feature the recently-released Census Business Builder (CBB). CBB provides access to key demographic and economic data from the Census Bureau (as well as other third party data) in an easy-to-use, interactive map-based tool. Webinar attendees will not only learn how to access and use the Small Business Edition of CBB, but will also learn about a prototype second edition of CBB designed specifically for Chambers of Commerce staff.
·         Expected level of knowledge for participants: No prerequisite knowledge required.
