August 8, 2016View for printing

As a result of partnering with Dr. Paul Lachapelle, Associate Professor, Extension Community Development Specialist, Local Government Center, MSU; and Dr. Ray Rasker, Executive Director, Headwaters Economics, MEDA partners are invited to join this webinar on Monday, August 15th, 1:30pm, for a review on using comprehensive data gathering tools.

This free webinar will demonstrate how to gather data that you use on a regular (if not daily) basis and showcase how easy it is to assemble, analyze and present the information gathered.

Ray Rasker of Headwaters Economics will give a demonstration of two free online tools for producing socioeconomic profiles: the Economic Profile System (EPS), and Populations at Risk (PAR). Both can be found at by clicking on "tools."
