A Comparison Table (or View) lets you display multiple characteristics for one or more locations. You can add any locations and variables from the panel on the left. You can browse data variables by categories, or by folders. You can also search by keyword. This is a simple, but informative View. This was called a Standard Report in SimplyMap.
A Ranking Table (or View) allows you to rank a variable across all locations within a larger geography; for example, the 100 highest income zip codes within a state. First, select a "boundary" location (for example, a state), then select the geographic unit that you are interested in (for example, zip codes), then add data. This was called a Location Analysis Report or a Ranking in SimplyMap.
This Business Report View is a table that contains detailed information about the businesses in your search. When you search for a business, a business report is auto-generated for you. You can change the businesses you see by selecting the Businesses tab on the left, and running another search.
A Related Data table (or View) lets you pull all similar variables together. Add one data variable to your table, and SimplyAnalytics will add the related data. For example, if you add one Educational Attainment variable, SimplyAnalytics will automatically include all related education data. You can use the top of this View to cycle by variations of the chosen variable, for example, switching between number and per cent.
In SimplyAnalytics, Views are unique ways to view and analyze your data. They auto-create some Views for you, but you can always create a View yourself by clicking on the New View button.
To create a new View, select New View towards the top right, and click on the appropriate View.
SimplyAnalytics includes several types of Views:
When you add new location and data variables, they are not always visible. But, since you've added them to a project, they’re easily added to any table/report or map. Under View Actions, select Edit View, to see the building blocks in your Current View, then add or remove them to create the exact report or map that you want.
