Plans for this year’s NM Data Users Conference are in the works. BBER is working with the Albuquerque Small Business Development Center to move the conference to a new location, the CNM Workforce Training Center. This venue will allow us to try a few breakouts with hands-on computer labs. Mark your calendars for November 13, 2014 and plan on attending for a data-filled day.

Last year the Fifteenth Annual New Mexico Data Users Conference, sponsored by the Bureau of Business and Economic Research, was a success. We had guest speakers from the U.S. Census Bureau, the NM Dept. of Health, the NM Dept. of Workforce Solutions, the NM Mortgage Finance Authority, the Mid-Region Council of Governments, the UNM Earth Data Analysis Center, and UNM-Geospatial Population Studies. Topics covered included:

  • Using American FactFinder, the Census Bureau’s data retrieval tool
  • The NM-IBIS public health data site
  • Accessing socio-economic data from the American Community Survey
  • GIS data resources for New Mexico
  • Recent trends in, and the short-term outlook for the New Mexico economy
  • Innovations at the Census Bureau and how they will affect the 2020 Census
  • Population estimates and projections for New Mexico
  • The New Mexico job market: find out which occupations are growing
  • The Census Transportation Planning Package
