*REVISED WEBINAR ACCESS INFORMATION:*

****CENSUS BUREAU MEDIA ADVISORY****

*Census Bureau to Host Embargo-Period Technical Webinar on New American Community Survey Race, Tribal, Hispanic and Ancestry Group Data Sets*

*What:* The U.S. Census Bureau will hold an embargo-period technical webinar on two new American Community Survey data sets:

-The 2006-2010 American Community Survey Selected Population Tables.

-The 2006-2010 American Community Survey American Indian and Alaska Native Tables.

This is the first time this level of statistical detail has been available for groups since Census 2000. The data sets compile five years of data to produce detailed estimates at multiple levels of geography for hundreds of race, Hispanic origin, ancestry and tribal groups. The webinar will also include a brief tutorial to show data users how to access the new data sets in American FactFinder, including new features designed to facilitate searches.

The event will consist of a simultaneous audio conference and online presentation. Reporters will be able to ask questions once the presentation is complete. We suggest reporters log in and call in early.

*When:* Tuesday, May 22, 2 p.m. (EDT)

*Who:* Roberto Ramirez, chief, Ethnicity and Ancestry Branch, Population Division

Nicholas Jones, chief, Racial Statistics Branch, Population Division

Jackie Mommsen, American FactFinder

*Details:* Audio conference ― access information

** The webinar is accessible to current embargo holders only; revised access information will be posted in the Census Bureau embargo page prior to the start of the event.**
