As the winner of the best poster award at the 2015 New Jersey State Data Center (NJSDC) Annual Network Meeting, WRI was invited to give a presentation on the development and design of its South Jersey Infographics. Paul L. Smith, Research Project Coordinator and Spencer T. Clayton, Graduate Assistant, presented to a diverse group from across the region, including representatives from the US Census Bureau, New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development, US Department of Agriculture, as well as government administrators representing counties and municipalities throughout the state of New Jersey.
The purpose of the NJSDC Annual Networking Meeting is for relevant stakeholders to present different methods in which US Census Data can be utilized to display important socioeconomic data and trends. Also, it provides the opportunity for the US Census Bureau to communicate new strategies for collecting data that will be released to the public through their website.
