An Overview


!


Step 3

Remove some default checkboxes to reduce clutter on map. We’ll remove: Census Tract, Block Group, Block, and Urban Area


  • Thematic Maps

  • From Data Sets page:

  • Select SF3.

  • Select the link for Thematic Maps.

  • Select desired Geographic area and then the desired theme.

  • Here we see Suitland-Silver Hill CDP percent of housing units built 1995 to 2000 by Census Tract.


“Change…” Area

By clicking any of the links under the “Change…” area, another window pops up where you can alter the color, number of data classes, title, etc.


  • American FactFinder Checklist

  • Can I find the data I am looking for in “Population Finder, “Fact Sheet,” “People,” or “Housing?”

  • If not, go to “Detailed Tables.”

  • Which Census or Survey do you wish to work with? That is, do you want your data to come from the American Community Survey, the 1990 Decennial Census, 2000 Decennial Census, or the Estimates program?

  • If from a Decennial Census, which Summary File do you want to work with? Short Form (Summary Files 1 and 2) or Long Form (Summary Files 3 and 4)?

  • Do you prefer the information displayed as a table or a map?

  • If table, what type? For example, Detailed table, Geographic Comparison Table, Quick Table, etc.

    Tips:

  • Data results (either Tables or Thematic Maps)from FactFinder can be saved in three ways. (1) As a file. (2) As a bookmark. (3) The web address can be saved (and emailed if desired).

  • Summary Files 2 and 4 focus mainly on iterating tables based on race.

  • Summary Files 3 and 4 specialize in variety of cross-tabulations. They contain some basic iterations of basic race.
