  1. Using American FactFinderand Data Ferrett Ronald Campbell The Orange County Register rcampbell@ocregister.com 0:00

  2. Is the new AFF an evil plot? 00:30

  3. Well, no: A long-needed change • “Legacy FactFinder” (launched 1999-2000) • Built for Census geeks • Grew over time; breadth, quality of data varies by topic • FactFinder 2 (launched January 2011) • More carefully designed • But poorly launched – and frustrating for longtime users 1:16

  4. Demo of legacy FactFinder 1:44

  5. Legacy FactFinder is like a box of chocolates … 4:18

  6. FactFinder 2 is already better • Topics • People • Counts, age & sex, income, etc. • Housing • Counts, occupancy, mortgage & rent • Datasets • Geography • States, counties, places • Address search 4:28

  7. In some respects it’s way better • User can choose among many results. • Search is interactive and nearly instant. • And the maps are far better than anything delivered by Legacy FactFinder. 5:20

  8. Demo of FactFinder 2 5:45

  9. But (you knew there would be a but …) • Why is it so hard to get data for all the places in a single county? • Why can’t I get a profile for my city on QuickStart? • Why is the transition taking so long? • Why can’t I export a map as a shapefile or KML? 23:00

  10. For the truly geeky: Data Ferrett! 23:57

  11. Nearly two dozen databases • Decennial Census • American Community Survey • Current Population Survey • Consumer Expenditure Survey • National Health & Nutrition Examination Survey • Survey of Income and Program Participation … and many more 24:30

  12. And it comes in many flavors! • Aggregate • Microdata • Time series • Longitudinal 25:09
