Guided Search is a step-by-step walkthrough of the data in American FactFinder, allowing users to find the most relevant data products for their search. Guided Search is ideal for users who are looking for basic economic statistics (e.g., Number of Establishments for a specific NAICS code). For more complex queries (e.g., Number of Establishments for multiple NAICS codes for multiple years) use Advanced Search.
Data in Guided Search is organized by the following categories: people, housing, businesses or industries, dataset, and table number or table title.
To find economic data, select the business or industries category. If you are interested in data from a specific year, select the dataset category. After selecting a category, click next to move on to the next step.

For any geography not in this subset, please use Advanced Search. If your desired geography is available but greyed out, it is because the geography is not relevant to the items in the Your Selections box.

When using the dropdown list, you select a geographic type followed by one or more additional selections until a result appears.
