Margins of error (MOE) are provided for every American Community Survey (ACS) estimate. In this webinar, we will explain MOEs, and why they are important. The webinar also will cover how to use MOEs for statistical testing, a demonstration of the statistical testing tool, how to approximate the MOE for an estimate, information on the variance replicate tables, and how to locate online resources for further information.
Webinar slides will be available online Wednesday morning for attendees to access in advance, and the webinar transcript, recording, and slides will be posted on the ACS Training Presentations page in a few weeks.
Date and Time: Wednesday, April 19th from 2:00-3:00 PM EDT
