What data is available on ABArray?

How do I view the data array dashboards?

Users may click the link to open the ABArray platform. Once the data array dashboard is open, users may advance to the other dashboards by clicking the arrow at the top right of the dashboard.

How do I interact with the data?

The data array dashboards allow users to sort and parse data points by clicking on the various graphs and by selecting individual or ranges of data from drop-down menus. This allows users to parse and examine different types of data in isolation.

How do I download the data?

Once a user has isolated the specific data of interest, click the "download" button located in the bottom right corner of the dashboard. Data from the public ABArray site may be downloaded as an image file, PDF, or PowerPoint slide.

When will new data be added?

Data from the previous year are collected from programs nationwide on an annual basis, beginning in the Fall of the current year, and will be added to the dashboard as soon as data have been received from all jurisdictions.. Users with access to the secured state-level ABArray site will have access to new data on a rolling basis as it is submitted.
