Social Explorer is a library-licensed tool for accessing data, mostly about the United States on topics like demographics, health care, crime rates, educational attainment, housing, income and more.
The videos below show you how to select data, mask the data to show just the state of Illinois, and how to create a report in table format from the data you've mapped.
These last two are much easier when you have a file listing all of the counties in Illinois that you can download here from Box.
Go to Social Explorer.
Note: The video shows an example where the geographies were chosen by uploading a list of counties in the state of Illinois, which is another option.
Tip: This is a very important part of your assignment. If you use Social Explorer to generate your map and data, be sure to keep track of how you decided to set the cut points so you can explain in your paper.
