Using the demographics module

The Nielsen Claritas demographic profile is a supplemental dataset that includes approximately 100, 250, or 500 data elements (depending on tier of purchase) that describe the demographic characteristics of your community at the state, county and zip code or census tract level. Nielsen Claritas annual estimates provide richer population estimates than the Census QuickFacts.

Summary and Topic Pages

The Demographics Dashboard module opens to an overview page of the different demographic elements for the selected location. Change the selected location by using the location dropdown menu.

Data is organized by different topics (for example: Population, Race, Ethnicity, Age, etc.). You can toggle between different topics by selecting the tabs at the top of the page. Under each topic, you can find all related demographic variables. You can also click the buttons, such as "See More Population Data", as seen above. 

Topic Pages & Jumping to a Specific Variable

Once a topic has been selected, all variable data for the chosen location will display. Selecting an item in the Jump To list will bring you directly to that selected variable where data values, graphs, charts, and/or tables will display.
