Registration is now open for the annual Microdata User's Workshop hosted by the Consumer Expenditure (CE) Survey from July 18-20 in Washington, DC.
There is no fee to register. The only requirement is to complete and submit a brief online registration form (PDF).
Registration materials are also available for the CE Survey Methods Symposium on July 17, also in Washington, DC.
Several sessions are targeted to new and novice users of the data, including presentations by researchers currently using the data. For more experienced CE data users, several sessions will address more technical topics in using the CE microdata. Participants will also have the opportunity to talk one-on-one with CE staff about any issues or questions regarding using CE in their particular project.
