Meeting About Demographics in the Blue Line

Demographic Trends in the Adirondacks
Rockefeller Institute, 411 State Street, Albany
Wednesday, October 7, 2015
1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
Co-Sponsored by the Rockefeller Institute of Government and the Adirondack Research Consortium

One of the difficult things about the Park is the problem finding accurate demographic data because the Blue Line does not fit with town lines, school district lines, county lines or any other standard.  We ran into this with ADK Futures.  It is a well known problem.  This short meeting will host presentation of a demographic analysis about the region that was built up using census block data, and adjusted to handle prison populations.  There will also be a presentation about broader trends to put the regional work into context.  Finally there will be an hour or so to discuss the policy implications of the data.

It should be a good meeting.  Real data is always a good thing and often surprises.  The venue means limited space, about 100 people.  So you need to call to get  a seat.  Michele Charbonneau at the Rockefeller Institute at (518) 443-5258 is the person to reach.
