Welcome to the CE Microdata Usersí Workshop Webpage!

July 18, 2017: The annual CE sponsored Survey Methods Symposium is a one-day event during which CE and several other federal and private sector surveys share information about their existing methods and experiences on a select set of research topics relevant to CE's ongoing redesign initiative.

July 19–21, 2017: The annual CE Microdata Usersí Workshop sessions are geared to microdata users of all levels of experience. The workshop is designed to help you learn how to use CE public use microdata using your own programming skills. Workshop participants are strongly encouraged to bring a personal laptop loaded with their preferred statistical software package. For planning purposes, please specify on the registration form the statistical software package you intend to use during the hanks-on training.

We highly recommend reviewing the Getting Started Guide (PDF) and downloading the 2015 datasets that will be used in the workshop practical training sessions prior to the event.

As part of this summerís workshop, we will invite CE data users to present their research process focusing on how CE data were used. The call for presenters for the 2017 workshop will be available at a later date. The deadline for submissions is May 1, 2017.
