To compare multiple states using the same data series over time, click on the states you would like to compare. Then scroll down and select the data series and the years you would like to see; then click on Generate Chart.
To compare data over time for one of the 50 states, click to the right on Select Multiple Data Series. Then scroll down and select up to three (3) data series, the state and the years you would like to see; then click on Generate Chart.
Not all data series can be compared because they use different metrics and are expressed in different units. For example, the percentage of a population cannot be compared to dollars or rankings.
