Create a report from a map

You can create a report right from the map application. 

Create report from topic

  1. In the Change data menu, click the  icon for More options.
  2. Click Create report.
  3. In the left-hand sidebar, select the survey for which you want to create a report from the Source dropdown. Whichever survey you were most recently viewing on the map will be the default. You may switch to any other survey in the dropdown list.
  4. Select one of the premade reports from the topics dropdown. Choose the essentials or comprehensive report for an overview, or a topical report, such as by age or race. 
    Note: You will be able to modify your report selections later as well.
  5. In the popup next to the Create a report panel, select the geography level you're interested in.
  6. Choose the geography selection tool at the top of the map. 

    Learn more about using our selection toolbox. We’ve also added a brand new tool to our geography selection toolbox, the layers tool . Using this tool, you can select geographies from your uploaded datasets and easily create reports for those specific geographies in Social Explorer maps. 

    You can select geographies from different levels in a single report. Also, keep in mind that you will be able to edit your data and geography selections after creating your report. Clicking the Reset button will clear all geography selections.

  7. Click Create.
