Census Business Builder, Small Business Edition 2.0 – Filter Feature


Welcome back to the Census Business Builder. The first video provided a brief overview of the key features of the Small Business Edition of the tool. This video will focus on the Filter Feature and how to use it. Once you have selected the variable you want to view on the map, you can filter the geographic areas presented on the map by using the Filter menu. Clicking Add New Filter brings up the list of variables. Note that this is the same list of variables that are in the map variables menu. In this example we are interested in filtering the county shown on Median Household Income. After selecting your first variable from the list, click on the Select Variable button. The range of values for this variable, that apply to all geographic areas shown on the map, is then then shown. Dragging the dot at the end of the slider bar, allows you to set the minimum and or maximum filter values for the geographic areas presented. Click the Apply Filter button to see the results of the filter in the map. The map then repaints to show the filtered geographic areas. Thank you for your interest in the Census Business Builder. Please view the accompanying Navigation and Report videos that explain these detailed features of the tool, plus the Tips video that provides hints on how best to use the tool. [Music]
