NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management is offering a full-day hands-on workshop on estimating and analyzing the local working waterfront economy. Participants will be introduced to economic indicators and the industrial classifications used to identify elements of the working waterfront. Attendees will also learn how to use and describe statistics in an economic analysis. Prior to the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to generate data for their geographic area of interest for use in the hands-on portion of the training. Intermediate experience with Microsoft Excel is strongly recommended.
