Create report using reports app

Creating a report consists of three steps: selecting geographies, selecting tables, and viewing/downloading your results. You may use reports to view and export one or thousands of variables and geographies quickly and easily.

  1. Head over to the Tables page. 
  2. Select the survey you're interested in. 
  3. Click Begin report next to the survey year you want to explore. 

  1. Select the geography type from the dropdown menu: nation, state, or county.
  2. Select one or more geographic areas and click Add.

    Repeat steps 4 and 5 until you have selected all the geographies you need. You can add a mixture of geography types (such as nation, county, and census tract), all in a single report. You may also select All Census Tracts in the United States or All Counties in Alabama.

  3. Click Proceed to Tables.

  1. Select a dataset. 

    For certain surveys, we included both the original, unabridged dataset and the dataset we preprocessed with the most popular variables.

  2. Select one or more tables and click Add.
  3. Click Show results.

You may also use Premade reports which are made from pre-selected tables that relate to a particular topic. These reports are a great way to get started. You can then switch back to Tables List to customize table selections.
