Data Search Tool Tutorial
3. Download and analyze data
Some of the Furman Center’s Neighborhood Information indicators are available at fine resolutions. For example, all our foreclosure data is available at the census tract level.
This tutorial assumes you’re familiar with selecting a Neighborhood Information indicator, and navigating through the data on the map and in the table. The previous two tutorials can help you learn how to do this.
When you look at the map, you will be able to see the concentration of foreclosures in fine detail.
If you switch to the table, you will be presented with foreclosure information for the more than 2000 census tracts in New York City. This may be more data than you want to see on the table. Follow the steps to narrow the amount of data displayed
If you want to narrow down the amount of data, you can select a specific borough and subborough, underneath the “Geographic Boundary” header.
If you select the Borough as Queens and the Subborough as Jamaica, only the 20 census tracts in Jamaica, Queens will be shown.
If you want to download the data, go to the table view. Click on the “Export to CSV” above the table on the right side.
