How to build a table in the Population Profile option [back to top]

Let's say you want to build a table containing the Sex (row variable) by Race (column variable) profile for a particular jurisdiction in the year 2013. For this example, let's assume that you are interested in a specific age group, say 0 to 5. Follow these steps:

  1. Select 2013 from the year pull down menu.
  2. Use the "select a jurisdiction" pull down menu to pick the location of interest.
  3. Select Sex and Race from the pull down menus labeled "Row variable" and "Column variable," respectively.
  4. Place a check mark next to the ages that fit your needs, in this case, the individual ages of 0 to 5. Tip: When making multiple age selections, use the pull down menus located under the "Age range" section of the table. Once you select the age range of interest, click on the "Set range" button.
  5. Click the "Show Table" button.

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

How to build a table in the State Comparison option [back to top]

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 2013 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 2013 from the year pull down menu.
  2. Select Race from the pull down menu labeled Column variable.
  3. Place a check mark next to the ages that fit your needs, in this case, the individual ages of 10 to 17. Tip: When making multiple age selections, use the pull down menus located under the "Age range" section of the table. Once you select the age range of interest, click on the "Set range" button.
  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.
