Search Hints

Some of the forms for filtering the datasets on the site offer search "hints" on some of the fields to help you find available options based on what you are inputting into the fields. If a field has this functionality, a menu will appear underneath the form as you type with a list of items that match the word you are typing into the text box. When the menu appears, simply click on the option that matches what you are looking for to automatically have it entered into the field to be added to your search. See the image below for an example:

Data Tables

The data sets are presented in tables on the pages. The tables allow you to interact and work with the data. You can sort the data in a table by clicking on a column header once to sort the data by that column in ascending order and again to sort in descending order. Paging options at the bottom of the table let you move through the datasets one page at a time.
