Statistics for Media
"We know that you work with statistics everyday, but when was the last time statistics worked for you?" Statistics Canada will be hosting a free workshop for media designed to show you how and where to look for the data you need, how to interpret them, and how to present them.
A three-hour session will be presented by Mr. Jey Dharmaraj and Mr. Fulvio Martinez, Communications Officers from Statistics Canada's Central Regional Office in Toronto (3:00-6:00 p.m.).
Topics to be covered in the workshop are:
- Turning Statistics Into Stories: Search, find and then use statistics in your stories.
- How to Use 2006 Census Data: We will explore 2006 Census concepts and geographies. Participants will gain a basic understanding on ways of manipulating data and permit them to understand the links between standard levels of geography.
- The Geographical Structure of the 2006 Census: The workship will also cover the concepts and the geographical structure used for disseminating the 2006 census data.
This session is presented in English. Registrations are limited. This is a recurring workshop presented on a monthly basis. Register by phone or e-mail.
