Advanced Search is ideal for users seeking large amounts of information across multiple datasets, geographies, industry codes, or topics.
The goal of Advanced Search is to manually build search results by selecting filters and keywords from different search menus. The available search menus are a general keyword search, Topics, Geographies, Race and Ethnic Groups, Industry Codes, and EEO Occupation Codes. Economic data is searchable via all search menus except Race and Ethnic Groups and EEO Occupation Codes.
Keyword Search allows you to search for data using keywords. First, input a keyword or phrase into the text boxes. Then, using the radio buttons below, select if you want to search all topics or limit the search to Race and Ethnic Groups, Industry Codes, or Occupation Codes.
When a search is to broad, a clarification screen appears. The clarification screen pulls suggestions from one or more search menu. You can either select one of the suggestions or go directly into the applicable search menu.

After each selection, the topic will move to the Your Selections box and the available topics will update to reflect the selections in the Your Selections box.

Once a result appears, select it and click ADD TO YOUR SELECTIONS to add it to the Your Selections box. You will now see the selected geography in Your Selections.

At this point you can either add more keywords and filters or select your industry code. To add the industry code to your search, select the industry code and then click Add. The code is added to the Your Selections box.
