Predefined Census Data Queries
Users should note that after selecting a particular state in the state tab and then clicking on another geographic level tab (Indian areas, places, counties, etc.), the LandView® program will automatically create a collection of records for that geographic level within that state. For example, clicking on the "Tracts" tab after selecting Oklahoma will create a collection of all census tracts within the state.
The resulting collection is identified in the Status Area as a Found
Set. This navigational method emulates the 'Setup a Find' process at any
level of Census geography that would require entering appropriate State
and/or County identifiers.
Because not all states have Indian Areas, consolidated cities, or minor civil divisions, a explanatory message will appear whenever the query finds no records in that geographic level.
Similarly, LandView will automatically create a collection of MCDs, census tracts and block groups if these tabs are selected after a county has been selected.
