CE Is Coming to Your Town!

Meeting with users of Consumer Expenditure Survey (CE) data is important to the CE program. Whether you use tables or microdata, we value your comments, and the opportunity to answer questions or otherwise assist you in using the data.

This page shows conferences at which CE staff from the National Office in Washington, DC, will be presenting. You may be interested in attending them, or in arranging for a CE staff member to visit your organization to deliver a formal presentation or attend a one-on-one meeting. Please note that neither the CE program nor the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is affiliated with the sponsors of these events. In addition, there usually are registration fees associated with these events. However, none of these fees is paid to the CE program or the BLS.
