When creating a custom dashboard, you have a few options for clarifying the location you are searching for.
One option is to simply type in the location you are looking for.
Another option is the click in the text box and scroll down for the location of interest.
You also have the choice to quickly choose all zip codes or census tracts by scrolling your mouse over or clicking the arrow on the right of the "Filter by Locations" box.
You can use a map to visually choose the locations of interest for your search. Scroll your mouse over or click the arrow on the right of the "Filter by Locations" box.
Choose Map View. Then select the area/s of interest by location type, all or none.
Close the Map View box by selecting the "x" on the top right-hand corner, then continue your search.
