Consumer Expenditure Survey (CE) Microdata Users' Workshop and Survey Methods Symposium, July 12-15, 2016

Welcome to the CE Microdata Usersí Workshop Webpage!

July 12, 2016: The CE sponsored Survey Methods Symposium is a full-day event during which CE and several other federal and private sector surveys will share information about their existing methods and experiences on a select set of research topics relevant to CE's ongoing redesign initiative.

July 13–15, 2016: The annual CE Microdata Usersí Workshop sessions are geared to microdata users of all levels of experience. The workshop is designed to help you learn how to use CE public use microdata using your own programming skills. Workshop participants are strongly encouraged to bring a personal laptop loaded with their preferred statistical software package. Wi-Fi will be available. We highly recommend reviewing the Getting Started Guide (PDF) and downloading the 2014 datasets that will be used in the workshop practical training sessions prior to the event.

As part of this summerís workshop, we invite you to present your research process focusing on how CE data were used. The call for presenters for the 2016 workshop is now available online. The deadline for submissions is May 1, 2016.

The events will be held in the Postal Square Building in Washington D.C.
