How to build a table in the Population Profile option

Let's say you want to build a table containing the Sex (row variable) by Race (column variable) profile for a particular jurisdiction in 2014. For this example, let's assume that you are interested in a specific age group, say 0 to 5. Follow these steps:

  1. Use the "select a State" and "Select a County" pull down menus to pick the location of interest.
  2. Select Sex and Race from the pull down menus labeled "Row variable" and "Column variable," respectively.
  3. Place a check mark in the box next to 2014. Tip: When selecting multiple years, use the drop down menus in the "Year range" box to select the lower and upper year boundaries for your table. Then click "Set year" and it will check off the years of interest for you. Note: If no year is selected, the table will default to the current data year.
  4. Place a check mark in the box next to the ages that fit your needs. In this case, select the individual ages of 0 to 5. Tip: When selecting multiple ages, use the drop down menus in the "Age range" box to select the lower and upper age boundaries for your table. Then click "Set age" and it will check off the years of interest for you.
  5. Click the "Show Table" button.

By selecting these specific ages, the table will contain the 2014 Sex by Race breakdown of youth ages 0 to 5 for the selected jurisdiction.

How to build a table in the State Comparison option

By default, individual States (including U.S. totals) always form the rows for the State comparison table. As such, you only need to supply the Year, Column variable, and selection criteria, if any, in order to create a state comparison table. Let's say you want to build a table showing the 2014 population for each state by Race. For this example, let's further assume that you are interested in a specific age group, say 10 to 17. Follow these steps:

  1. Select Race from the pull down menu labeled Column variable.
  2. Place a check mark in the box next to 2014. Tip: When selecting multiple years, use the drop down menus in the "Year range" box to select the lower and upper year boundaries for your table. Then click "Set year" and it will check off the years of interest for you. Note: If no year is selected, the table will default to the current data year.
  3. Place a check mark in the box next to the ages that fit your needs. In this case, select the individual ages of 10 to 17. Tip: When selecting multiple ages, use the drop down menus in the "Age range" box to select the lower and upper age boundaries for your table. Then click "Set age" and it will check off the years of interest for you.
  4. Click the "Show Table" button.

By selecting these specific ages, the table will display the racial population of each State for persons ages 10 to 17.

How to build a table in the County Comparison option

By default, individual Counties (including State totals) always form the rows for the County comparison table. As such, you need to supply the Year, State, Column variable, and selection criteria, if any, in order to create a county comparison table. Let's say you want to build a table showing the 2013 population for your state by Race. For this example, let's further assume that you are interested in a specific age group, say 10 to 17. Follow these steps:

  1. Use the state pull down menu to locate the state of interest.
  2. Select Race from the pull down menu labeled Column variable.
  3. Place a check mark in the box next to 2014. Tip: When selecting multiple years, use the drop down menus in the "Year range" box to select the lower and upper year boundaries for your table. Then click "Set year" and it will check off the years of interest for you. Note: If no year is selected, the table will default to the current data year.
  4. Place a check mark in the box next to the ages that fit your needs. In this case, select the individual ages of 10 to 17. Tip: When selecting multiple ages, use the drop down menus in the "Age range" box to select the lower and upper age boundaries for your table. Then click "Set age" and it will check off the years of interest for you.
  5. Click the "Show Table" button

By selecting these specific ages, the table will display the racial population for each county in the selected state for persons ages 10 to 17.
