Title: Proceedings of the 1981 integrated data users workshop

Abstract

In 1980 the first Integrated County-Level-Data Users Workshop was organized by an ad hoc group from several different agencies to provide a forum for exchanging ideas, methods, and data. The second workshop maintained the same general scope and format. The planning and organizing continues to be shared by a diverse group of individuals that are dedicated to facilitating increased use of data resources as evident from the workshops. The scope of the 1981 Workshop was described as follows: Mobilizing physical, social, environmental, or economic statistical data to solve problems involves a variety of different but related activities. Primary data collection results in data bases, often established along mission or discipline lines. Data clearinghouses provide a referral mechanism to the primary data by developing inventories of the contents and location of primary data. Integrated data bases can be created from the primary data, and some integrated data bases constitute formal systems, either statistical or cartographic in nature. Discussions will address, but will not be limited to, county-level data. The second Integrated Data Users Workshop will offer an opportunity for participants to examine the challenge of integrating data to solve interdisciplinary problems and to explore opportunities to increase the efficiency of suchmore » activities. There were 30 poster exhibits, demonstrations, and groups with handouts. Abstracts are included for posters for which material was submitted. The Data Base Inventory contains descriptions submitted both last year and this year. It also contains a listing of published inventories that are very useful in searching for available data. The Contact List includes the 208 participants plus an additional 230 individuals who participated last year or who expressed a desire to be included.« less
