Charting Options SummarySelect the options you want and click any Chart button to see the chart(s) you've selected. Click the Reset button to change all options back to their default values.
By-variables allows you change the order that by-variables are charted. The primary by-variable values are represented by tick marks on the domain axis (x axis). The secondary by-variable values, if they exist, are represented by extra sets of bars or lines, one for each secondary by-variable value.
Measures allows you to pick which measure(s) to chart. You can pick one or more items from the measures list. By default one chart will be created for each measure. You can also choose to chart all selected measures on the same chart. See "Combine Measures in one Chart" below.
Height in Pixels allows you to change the size of the charts returned.
Width in Pixels allows you to change the size of the charts returned.
Use Codes as Labels displays the by-variable codes, instead of the user friendly labels, on axes and legends. Not particularly useful for by-variables that use arbitrary codes. This is more useful for by-variables that have a recognized standard, such as FIPS, ICD9, etc.
Value Precision allows you to change the number of decimal values that are used in the data. This may or may not affect tick mark labels on the range axis (y axis). If you select one of the options below that display values on the chart line, bar or pie section, then the labels placed on the chart use this precision. If you select a precision greater than the precision inherent in the data returned from the request, then only actual precision present in the data will get displayed. Hence, no padding trailing zeros are ever added to values displayed. This option does not affect the display of values that are whole numbers.
Chart Title allows you to add a title that just appears on the Charts page.
New Page Each Chart causes each chart to start on a new page when this page is printed.
Show Values puts the actual value charted on the bar or line.
Hide Titles allows you to remove the title displayed over each chart. By default, titles are a combination of by-variables and measures charted. They can be redundant since this info also appears on the domain axis (x axis) and the range axis (y axis).
Axis Spacing affects spacing between tick marks on the by-variable axis (x-axis). Particularly useful when secondary by-variables are present and chart type is a bar chart. Option can be used to improve seperation between clusters of bars so that it is more apparent which cluster of bars for the secondary by-variable values go with each tick mark. A larger value puts greater seperation between bar clusters. Acceptable values are 0.1 to 2.8.
Combine Measures in one Chart allows you to chart multiple measures on one chart. All measures selected in the Measures listbox will appear on the same chart. The first measure will be charted using the selected chart type, remaining measures will be charted as lines. When there is a secondary by-variable a mechanism is required to distinguish the secondary by-variable values within each measure. Listed below are the different color and shape schemes available to distinguish secondary by-variable values within each measure. The scheme selection affects the chart only when there is a secondary by-variable.
Pie Rotation allows you to rotate the pie charts. Acceptable values are -360 degrees to 360 degrees.
