In addition to now being able to create a State only profile, single or multi-region areas can be selected to compare to single or multi-region areas of your choice. Furthermore, some users’ systems will allow region selection by text searching and/or by interacting with a map. Summary region type details are also now available, along with a wide selection of report types covering various topics. All profiles are generated automatically using the latest demographic, social and economic data available.
