make table

The Custom TableMaker allows you to build your own table in three steps.

Step One: Select categories.

Measures are organized into eight subject categories, so that you can avoid scrolling through hundreds of items to find what you need.

  • You can select one or two categories.
  • You can combine measures from two categories in the same table.

Step Two: Select measures.

Measures for the subject areas you selected in Step One are presented as a list on this screen.

  • All measures return data by country unless labeled "U.S. and each state."
  • Most measures are available for only a subset of countries in the database. (In Step Three, you will be able to choose from a list of available countries).
  • You can choose as many measures as you like.
  • More measures will generate a wider table. As a general guideline, tables with up to 12 measures will return quickly and print on a single legal-size sheet. (See "Printing Tables" below.)

Step Three: Select countries or states.

This screen will display ONLY the countries or states with available data for the measures you selected in Step Two.
