Return to maps and find your census tract

Return to the Social Explorer mapping tool and find your census tract.  This is described in Step 2 of the Making a Table tutorial.

Determine the range of your map

  • Make sure "Tract" is chosen from the top drop-down menu.
  • Note: Depending on the population density of the region, your map should encompass a larger or smaller geographic area (i.e., choose a larger area for sparsely populated regions with large census tracts).
  • Zoom out to include the census tract and some of the surrounding area.You should capture multiple census tracts in your map.
