Using Data for ConnectHomeUSA

Council of Large Public Housing Authorities
Washington, District of Columbia
Wednesday, September 25, 2019 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm

One of the primary goals of the ConnectHomeUSA (CHUSA) team is to share information and resources to help CHUSA communities successfully pursue funding opportunities. Good data is an essential component of preparing successful funding applications.

Every year, the U.S. Census Bureau contacts over 3.5 million households across the country to participate in the American Community Survey (ACS), a premier source of information about America’s changing population, housing and workforce. The ACS began collecting data about computer use and Internet access in 2013 and provides yearly estimates of communities with 65,000 people or more.

Join us for the next CHUSA webinar featuring Emy Tseng, Senior Broadband Program Specialist with the U.S. Department of Commerce's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), to learn more about using ACS data to better understand how people in your community are using computers and the Internet. The webinar will also feature Tyson Weister, Program Analyst for the U.S. Census Bureau, who will do a demonstration on how to use, a new site that allows the public to find other important community data (population, income, etc.)

For questions about registration, please contact: Janelle Beverly at or (202) 407-8714.
