Suppose you performed a Find on the number of counties that have less then 5,000 persons. You may then click on the Summarize button to get the total number of persons, by age, sex and race etc. in those counties.
You could also select a collection of census tracts from MARPLOT and then summarize to get the population statistics totals for all the people living in the selected area.
To do this, first highlight the tracts that you are interested in in MARPLOT. Then from the Sharing menu, select LandView - Get Info, this will take you back to the LandView Demographic Profile screen with the Tract database in use. The left-hand column will show the total number of Tract records in the database, and the number of records found (selected). Clicking on the Summarize button will result in one summary record for the selected tracts.
