I'm glad to hear FHWA is thinking about a webinar on AFF2. I can't attend
the one on July 19 anyway.
A data request to my office just reminded me how AFF2 has forced us to limp
when we thought we knew how to walk. I hate to tell a data user "Census 2010
data is essentially unavailable to you unless you can crack AFF2," but
that's essentially what I had to tell somebody today. Beyond data sets we
have already downloaded, the public is in its own.
At least with some training I might be able to give tips to inexperienced
users who are even more baffled than I am.

Subject: [CTPP] Tips and Tricks for Using the New American FactFinder
Below is information for a fee-based webinar dealing with using the New
American FactFinder (AFF2). While this is the first webinar of this type
that I have heard about we are also trying to get someone from the Census
Bureau to do a FREE FHWA-sponsored webinar on AFF2.
Tips and Tricks for Using the New American FactFinder Webinar
