Webinar: Using Big Data Systems to Democratize Access to LED and Other Census Data

The Census Bureau and the Local Employment Dynamics (LED) Partnership in collaboration with the Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER), welcomes Vivian Zheng as she presents, “How to Use Big Data Systems to Democratize Access to LED Data.”


The data science team at the Urban Institute has developed a big data system that allows researchers to easily access and analyze LED data. In addition, the team has used this system to create national summary files of the LED data at the tract and place level. In this presentation, Zheng will discuss how Urban built the system to read and process the data, why it is valuable to researchers, the use cases seen so far from our researchers and partners, and how researchers can access the summarized data.
