The Tennessee State Data Center Affiliates met virtually on Monday, December 14, 2020. The 2-hour virtual session included project updates from State Data Center staff and affiliate agency representatives about ongoing work across the state.


If you want to learn about using these data products for business planning, grant proposals, research projects, municipal planning and more, there are free resources and training available for Tennessee data users.


Registration is now open for the Tennessee State Data Center’s Fall Webinar Series. We’ve lined up a slate of three events focused on helping you be ready for next year’s 2020 Census data releases that are scheduled for March, 2021.


Microdata is a set of individual responses to the American Community Survey that have been anonymized. Why should microdata matter to you? Because it can be used to create custom tables about population and households in combinations that are not found in data.census.gov pre-compiled tables.


Accessing Census microdata (individual survey responses) is challenging without special software or expertise. But MDAT, the new Census Bureau Microdata Access Tool, unlocks this incredibly powerful data in a new web-based interface.


Thanks to everyone across the state who gathered in Nashville on October 22nd for our 2019 Conference. We had a great turnout with about a 100 people in attendance throughout the day. Slide decks from all our presenters have been posted to the website.


The State Data Center’s annual conference is just two months away. Reserve your seat for a full day conference focused on data topics, tools and techniques relevant to Tennessee data users.


Begin making plans to attend the SDC’s annual conference this fall. We’ll be returning to Nashville for our free, one-day event with presentations, speakers and networking opportunities.
