  4. Year

    The Year controls let you control the year being shown on the map and in the Bar Chart.

  5. Data Controls

    Use these buttons to toggle the base map, clear any selected neighborhoods, or create a report if you have one or more neighborhoods selected.

  6. Variable Value

    The Value of each variable is shown here – for the area you’ve selected on the map, and for the county as a whole.

  7. Charts

    The Bar Chart acts as a legend for the map and also shows the density of the data - the taller the bar, the more neighborhoods are in that range. The dashed line represents the median value.

    The Line Chart, if available, shows the trend of the variable over time.
