Data on families : Maps and charts for Mother’s Day

Summary:
View on GeoFRED® Did you remember to call your mother yesterday? Did you send flowers? Why not also send her a (belated) FRED dataset? Above is one example—a colorful GeoFRED map showing county-level data on single-parent households with children. Below is another—a pie chart showing the percentages of family types with their own children: married couples, single mothers, and single fathers. Once you’ve selected some FRED data, explore more graph formats by clicking on “Edit Graph” from the series page. You can get to the series page for the FRED data shown here by clicking on “View on GeoFRED” and “Customize” at the bottom of the image. From the “Format” tab, navigate through the options, including colors and patterns. And don’t forget to say “Thank you” to Mom! [embedded content]

How the map was created: In GeoFRED, click on “Tools” and select the county maps. Look for “Single-Parent Households” in the dropdown menu. From the “Choose Colors” tab pick colors to taste.
How the pie graph was created: In FRED, search for “Total Families with Children under 18 Years Old with Married Couple.” From the “Edit Graph” panel, use the “Add Line” feature to search for and select the “Total One Parent Families with Children under 18 Years Old with Mother.” Do the same to add the series “Total One Parent Families with Children under 18 Years Old with Father.” From the “Format” tab select “Graph type: Pie” and pick segment colors to taste.
