Folks who need information about the region for statistical and comparative purposes are invited to a demonstration from 10 a.m. to noon March 7 by DataHaven Executive Director Mark Abraham at the New Haven Public Library, 133 ELm St., the library said in a statement.
There is no charge for this workshop, the statement said.
