You can also select ONE individual variable in the righthand box and click on DONE.
8. You can also create a map. From the top menu, click on RUN/MAP. You will receive a map of all of the block groups in the chosen tracts. Click on the righthand box to change the variable. Run the mouse over the map to get an identification of the block group and tract number as well as the actual data for that area.
