SimplyAnalytics: Getting Started

A guide to using the SimplyAnalytics (formally SimplyMap) database to access data related to Census and market research and to create online mapping.

Create Maps

  • Choose a geographic unit (census tract or block group) from Filter Arrow on the tab menu 
  • Click on Edit Legend tab to change your classification choice of the data display such as number of display categories and Quantile (local), etc.
  • Click on Display Options (hambuger menu), Check "Apply Location Mask" to show your location only as shown below



Note: SA only allows one variable at a time on the map.  But you can filter your map with another variable.  Use Data Filters option> select another variable and criteria of that variable (i.e. Income below than $30,000).
