Selecting a specific population group

Data for subpopulations of objectives may be presented separately. These subpopulations are known as "specific populations" or "select populations". These include racial, gender, educational attainment, income groups, or special populations, such as Adolescents. The user can select by highlighting an option. Options include single specific populations, such as "FEMALE only" or "MALE only". Options also include groupings of subpopulations, such as "FEMALE only and MALE only" which will present both the female and male data separately in the table.
