From the Help Desk – Analyzing all States at Once
Posted on by GRI Admin
Hello readers! This week’s “From the Help Desk” is short & sweet. Let’s get to it!
Question: How do I analyze all of the states at once in a report?
Answer: The Ranking Report allows you to analyze all of the smaller geographic units in one larger area. For example, all the states in the USA, all of the Census Tracts in a County, etc.
Ranking Reports are a default view in your project, so there are only a few steps required.
1. Open the Ranking Report from the list of Views on the right side of the SimplyAnalytics window
2. In your Ranking Report, set the location to be: USA
3. Set the appropriate dropdown to be: States
Your report will compile showing all the states in the USA. From there you are welcome to add in any variables of your choosing by selecting them from the list of recently used variables at the top of the report, or browsing the Data panel for additional variables.
That’s it for today! Stay tuned for more, and as always please do not hesitate to reach out to us with your questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
