American FactFinder: How do I select geographies if they are not listed in the Reference Map or in the Advanced Search Geographies map tab’s “Select Geographies” dropdown box? 

The Reference Map and the Advanced Search Geographies map tab’s “Select Geographies” dropdown options will vary at specific zoom level(s).  The closer you zoom into an area, the more geography options you will see available to select from in the “Select Geographies” dropdown box. For example, census tracts are not a default geography option listed in the “Select Geographies” dropdown box if you are zoomed to the state or national level.  You will need to zoom closer in to at least the county level or lower for census tracts to display in the “Select Geographies” dropdown box.
