American FactFinder: The geography I entered in Community Facts is not the one I was looking for.  How do I change it?

This happens when there is more than one place with the same name.  For example, as you type “Arlington,” a type-ahead list of suggestions will display.  If you don’t select from the type-ahead list, FactFinder will display data for “Arlington County, Virginia” by default.  If this is not what you were looking for you can retry your search by either:

  • Clicking the “We found more results for your geography search” link located under the Geography name.
  • Adding additional information to your text search (Arlington, TX instead of just Arlington); or
  • Selecting one of the suggested options from the type-ahead list.
