How to Use the Data Explorer:

1. Select the question you want to examine

  • In the first row, click the Select a question drop-down to view all questions. You can type in this box to search through the list.
    • For example, type 'marijuana' to show only questions containing that word.
  • You can also filter the questions list by selecting a category in the All categories drop-down.
    • Select 'Drugs' to show only questions related to drugs.
  • After selecting a question, click Generate Graph to create your custom graph and data table.

2. Additional Options

  • You optionally can select a second question in the second row. This will compare the first question to the second one.
    • For instance, you can explore how cigarette use varies with alcohol use.
  • You can filter the data by selecting a year, grade, gender, or race in the last row. This will show only data for the selected group(s).
