Custom data groups allow you to group similar data items or geographic areas into your own group which you can then use in your table.
Custom data groups can only be made up of data items of the same type. For example, you can create a new age group of 13 to 19 years of age and name it 'Teenagers', or create a new geographic area by grouping areas to make up your custom area. You cannot combine age and geography into one group.
To create custom data groups, click on the link in 'Table View'.
(i) Select the data items you would like use in your custom data group by expanding the category area tree in the box at Step 1 box.
Note: To expand the categories, click on the button.
(ii) Tick the data items within the same category level you would like in your group:
Note: To untick all of the boxes you have selected, use the 'Untick all' button at the top of the Step 1 box.
(iii) Once you have selected data items for your custom group, click the button and the selected data items will move to the 'Current Group Items' box on the right.
To remove data items from the group, tick them in the Grouped Items list, click the button.
(iiii) Once the grouped items list shows all of the data items you want included in your group, name your customised group by typing the desired name in the blank box at Step 2 and then click the 'Save Group' button.
The screen will refresh and your customised data now appears in the 'My Custom Data and Geography' box under the category level the group was created from:
Note: Custom groups can only be created from within any one category level and cannot be created from multiple levels within the same category. For example you cannot make a group using Age and Occupation, however you can create a group of two states or two age groups.
Note: There is a limit to the amount (volume) of data you can save. You will be notified via email when you are close to reaching this limit. To free up space, it is recommended that you delete files you no longer need.
