About the Presenter:
Dr. Xuehao Chu is a senior research associate at the Center for Urban Transportation
Research, University of South Florida since 1993. He has his BS degree in Mathematics
from Hangzhou University, China and his Ph.D. in Economics from the University of
California at Irvine. His recent work focuses on developing manuals and tools for

Community Survey Statistical Analyzer.
About the Session:
This session introduces and demonstrates the ACS Statistical Analyzer. It is an
Excel-based template for users of estimates from the American Community Survey (ACS) to
assess the precision of individual estimates and to compare pairs of estimates for their
statistical differences. The ACS Statistical Analyzer covers the following four functions
and fifteen sub-functions (not listed):
* To derive other precision measures for published ACS estimates at American
FactFinder or from the Census Transportation Planning Products (CTPP), which already have
a margin of error (MOE).
* To derive the precision measures for estimates that do not already have an MOE.
* To derive the precision measures of new estimates obtained from two or more
original estimates that already have an MOE.
* To compare pairs of two estimates that already have an MOE.
