  • Age Groups

    To filter the dataset to an age group, select the group or groups from the drop-down box. For statewide analyses, leave specific age groups unchecked.

    To group your results by age group, choose a coding scheme here, and then select "Age group" in the last step, "How to display the data."

    Select an age group to filter the data or to use in the last step, "How to display the data."

  • How to Specify Age Groups

    Enter whole numbers from 18 to 99.

    Use a hyphen to indicate a range of ages (e.g., "5-8" will includes ages 5, 6, 7, and 8).

    You may use greater than (>) and less than (<) symbols. An entry of (<65) includes all adults under age 65 years.

    You may also use a plus sign (+) to indicate all ages equal to or greater than (e.g.,"85+" yields all those aged 85 and over).

Primary group by field

Defines the data's primary grouping dimension. The primary grouping is required and also controls the ordering of the result's data rows. In MS-Excel and other graphing packages this is typically referred to as the the "dataset's category". If viewing in a 2-d table layout then this value/dimension is associated with table's "row" values. Others will refer to this value as the first "cross by" or the first dimension.

Optional secondary group by field

Defines the 2nd field (or dimension) to be used to group and aggregate values by. MS-Excel chart users will commonly refer to this as the dataset's "series" field. If viewing in a 2-d table layout then this field is associated with data table's value columns. Series group bys are optional. Maps and some charts, like the "Pie" chart, are currently not programmed to handle datasets that have more than one group by e.g. they only work with the primary category type group by being specified.

Optional chart graph

Defines the optional chart graphic to display.

NOTE: Maps and some charts, like the "Pie" chart, are currently not programmed to handle datasets that have more than one group by e.g. they only work with the primary category type group by being specified. All other charts will only work with a maximum of 2 group bys e.g. if the fixed group by exists then the series group by can NOT be used with charting or maps.

Optional Map Visualization

Defines the optional map graphic to display.

NOTE: Maps are only available when the category is set to a geographical area and does not have a series defined.
