Introduction to ArcGIS Software using Health Data Sets

This hands-on workshop will introduce a variety of sources for U.S. Census data, and highlight the pros and cons of each. Exercises will focus on importing, manipulating and displaying a few different health-related data sets from the U.S. Census and North Carolina Agencies (e.g. insurance coverage, poverty, hospital locations, etc.) within ArcMap. A brief overview of the U.S. Census will be provided.
