Thanks to everyone who attended today's webinar, "MDCD Tools to Find the Census Data You Need." A recording of the webinar can be accessed using the following link.
This webinar included a live demonstration of the Missouri State Data Center's Dexter (data extraction) tool, which unfortunately cannot be downloaded in a standard presentation format (PPT, PDF, etc.). However, many of the same functions demonstrated during the webinar are available as a series of video tutorials on the MCDC website using the link below.
Just wanted to give a heads up that the new county commuting flows, based on the 5-year 2009-2013 ACS were released today. The tables include the typical worker flow counts as well as a means of transportation component (4 categories: drove alone, carpool, transit, other). The tables also include a metropolitan area indicator, so it is possible to sort and organize by metro area.

Looking for historical census data? Can't find the current census data you are looking for? Then this webinar is for you!
John Blodgett of the University of Missouri Office of Social and Economic Data Analysis (OSEDA) will offer a presentation and demonstration of tools available through the Missouri State Data Center (MCDC)<http://census.missouri.edu/>. The MCDC is a premier site in the country for accessing census and other public, machine-readable demographic and geographic data. Topics will include:
* An overview of the MCDC's Uexplore/Dexter software
* Live examples of using Uexplore/Dexter to locate and extract data with special emphasis on data from the 2010 Census and the American Community Survey
* Using MCDC custom web applications to look at profile and trend reports, and to do custom extracts from 2010 Census and latest 5-year ACS data
* Accessing ACS base/summary tables and metadata using Uexplore/Dexter
* A brief introduction to the MABLE/Geocorr (geographic correlation) web applications
As a bonus, Penelope Weinberger (AASHTO) will provide an update on the next CTPP special tabulation, which will be based on 2011-2015 ACS 5-Year data.
