This will bring you to a list of available surveys.



Selecting a Survey:

Click on a survey name to view the full list of available years.  In this screen, I clicked on the Decennial Census to explore the different decades available.



Click Begin Report next to the survey you want to explore (2010 in this example).



Once you pick your survey, Social Explorer will bring you to the Create a Report page.
