Reports generate a detailed report for a pre-defined location, radius around an address, or custom region. Users can generate as many reports for as many locations needed without additional costs. All reports use the latest data available in PolicyMap.
First, choose the type of report you wish to generate. Each report was created with the idea that the data in a report will better describe the area you selected. Here are descriptions of each report:
- The Community Profile is a snapshot of life in an area, including information on its population, racial composition, age, income, workforce, and much more. See a sample Community Profile Report.
- The Rental Housing Report includes rent information by bedroom size and income, as well as affordability data. See a sample Rental Housing Report.
- The HMDA Report is a summary of the number, typical amount, and type of home mortgages origins, including high-cost lending activity and high interest loans by race or ethnicity. Data comes from the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA). See a sample HMDA Report.
- The Community Health Report provides a summary of healthcare access, health behaviors, general health, morbidity, mortality, food security, and social determinants of health in the area. See a sample Community Health Report. The Community Health Report is available only to premium subscribers.
Once you have selected a report, you can choose what area the report will generate for. There are many ways to select an area:
On the Preview Report Area page, users can change the radius or address. When you are ready, click "Generate Report".
When printing a report, any sections you do not want to display can be collapsed and the PDF printout will not display the data. The header for each section will still be visible.
