Exploring the Mississippi Delta through Data from the American Community Survey

You are invited to a presentation by Mr. Cliff Holley (University of Mississippi Center for the Population Studies and State Data Center) concerning the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey and how it can be used to better understand the demographic and socioeconomic characteristics of the Mississippi Delta.  This free event will be held from 12 noon – 1 pm on Friday, February 24 at the Coahoma County Higher Education Center in Clarksdale, MS.  Please RSVP if you plan to attend by contacting Lynn Woo at lcwoo@olemiss.edu.  (This is a “brown bag” lunch event. You can bring your own lunch if you desire. Beverages and cookies will be provided.)  This event is made possible by the “Health and Development in the Mississippi Delta” Workshop Series for Planning and Evaluation. The Workshop Series is a coordinated effort between The University of Mississippi Center for Population Studies, the Delta State University Center for Community and Economic Development, and the Coahoma County Higher Education Center. The Community Foundation of Northwest Mississippi is a sponsor of this initiative.
