Once a data pool or view is created and put on the Simpler platform, it can be composed in hundreds of ways based on filters, grouping, and aggregation. Here are some examples of what that can look like for our demo dataset of Compensation for California Entities (Counties, Cities, Districts, etc...)For each example:

  1. Take a look at the criteria bar on the page to see how the examples were created.

  2. Click to the Search page to see what it looks like in the form.

  3. Look at the URL to see how it controls what you see on the Data page.
