4. Let's set the Time Frame field to search 2017-Current Data so we can compare the recent growth.

5. You can view the Data Boundary by City or City By Zip Code. Let's leave view City By Zip Code and press Generate Map.

6. In Step 3 of the sidebar, a line chart illustrates the growth in population over the selected timeframe.

7. On a red to green scale, the map is colored so you can easily compare the dominant growing areas in the city. Hover your mouse over the map and see their percentages.

8. Add the map to your layers so you can stack this data and hide/unhide it.
