Aired: August 29, 2012 from noon to 1:00pm EDT

Several watershed groups in Indiana and around the Great Lakes Region have successfully used social indicators to help plan and evaluate their watershed work.  This webinar will provide a short background on what social indicators are and how to use them.  It will then provide brief tutorials in how to use the handbook developed for the “Social Indicators Planning and Evaluation System (SIPES)” and how to use the online survey building tool, the “Social Indicators Data Management and Analysis (SIDMA)” tool.  Participants in the webinar will learn whether using social indicators makes sense for their projects and how to get started using social indicators.
