From this table we can see, for example, that there were 10,805,615 Canadian households in 2001 for which HiCO assessed housing conditions, and that this was up from 10,027,840 households in 1996, and 9,371,730 households in It also shows that the average 2001 income of the 10.8 million households was almost \$61,000, that their average monthly shelter cost was \$764, and that on average they spend 21% of their household income to pay for their shelter. 4 Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation

5 c) What this guide does The Beginner s Guide demonstrates how to create a customized table, like the one in Figure 1.2. By following the steps to create this table, you will become familiar with the various features and functions of HiCO, and learn how to create custom tables containing the household data that are of interest to you. You may want to look at Average Household Income for all households by Household type, for Canada, the provinces and territories in 2001, 1996 and Whatever you want to do, The Beginner s Guide will point you in the right direction. In our example below we want our customized table to identify, for renter households only, the average household income, average shelter cost and average proportion of household income spent on shelter (Shelter-Cost-to-Income Ratio or STIR) by whether they live in rental units that meet Canada s housing standards, for Canada, the provinces and territories in Using the exercise of creating the table in figure 1.2, we will provide instructions on how to move, replace and nest dimensions, how to select items within dimensions and how to use the other dimensions to control aspects of the households examined in the table. Figure 1.2: Finished product Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation 5

6 CHAPTER TWO MOVING, REPLACING AND NESTING VARIABLES a) Introduction HiCO s most powerful tool is its ability to move column and row headings to allow you to create customized data tables. For example, you may want to move the Age dimension from its place in the Other dimensions, and make it a row heading. Or you may want to make Household Type a column heading. b) Moving Learning to move a Dimension in HiCO is an important first step in understanding how to use its primary functions. A dimension can be moved to replace a different one in a column or row heading, or to replace an Other dimension. Likewise, a dimension can be moved to nest among headings or among the Other dimensions. By shifting around and replacing the dimensions used as column and row headings you change the shape of, and information contained in the table you create. Step 1: To move a dimension, select the one you want to move by pressing and holding down the mouse button on the required dimension. It is important to press on the stippled or shaded area, and not the text, as indicated in Figure 2.1. Click on the stippled or shaded area and not the text. Figure 2.1: Example of where to click to select a dimension for movement 6 Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation

7 Step 2: Once the Dimension has been selected, the Dimension box will disappear and will be replaced by a little yellow box, as shown in Figure 2.2. While still pressing and holding down the mouse button, move the yellow box to where you want the selected dimension to go on the table. As you are moving your mouse around the page, you will notice that certain areas turn yellow while others do not. You may move a Dimension to any area that turns yellow. Once you release the Dimension from being dragged, the table will re-load to account for the Dimension s new location. This is how you move Dimensions around the table. We can now begin to create Figure 1.2 by moving Hsg Standards (Housing Standards) to place it where it is needed, to look like the table shown in Figure 1.2. Section 2c. will demonstrate how to do this. Figure 2.2: Example of what a dimension looks like when selected for moving Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation 7

8 c) Replacing Section 2.c builds upon the knowledge of Section 2.b. Replacing dimensions and headings is one of the basic tools needed for creating customized data tables in HiCO. By replacing Year with Hsg Standard we take the first step in creating the table in Figure 1.2. Step 1: Select the Hsg Standard dimension. Remember to click on the stippled part of the dimension box, not the text. Step 2: Once the Hsg Standard dimension has been selected, drag it over to the Year dimension. Do not release the Hsg Standard until the Year dimension has been completely highlighted. Step 3: When the Year dimension has been completely highlighted, as seen in Figure 2.4, release the Hsg Standard dimension. Figure 2.3: Demonstration of where to move the selected dimension Figure 2.4: Example of what dimensions look like when they are about to be released 8 Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation

9 When the dimension has been released from being dragged, the new table will automatically load with Housing Standards (Hsg Standards) in place of Year, as seen in Figure 2.5. Now, let s say you have placed a dimension as a row or column heading, and you decide you don t want it there. You may remove that heading, by nesting it with the Other dimensions. Note though, that there must always be at least one column heading and one row heading in your table at all times. The next section (2.d) describes the nesting process in detail. To learn more, you may also consult the Web Data Server (WDS) Help Files and the Video Tutorials for working examples of how dimensions can be replaced and nested. Figure 2.5:Year has been replaced by Hsg Standards Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation 9

11 Places to Nest a Column Heading Places to Nest Among the Other" Dimensions Places to Nest a Row Heading Figure 2.6: Examples of where dimensions can be nested To remove a dimension from a row or column heading, nest it with the Other dimensions. Nesting with the Other dimensions allows you to move dimensions from the headings without having to replace them with another one. Like replacing dimensions, nesting dimensions requires you to move the dimension to the desired location. However, unlike replacing, you do not need to highlight the whole of the target dimension. Instead, move the dimensions you are nesting until you see a yellow line (see Figure 2.7 for example). Step 1: Select and drag the dimension you wish to nest as indicated in this Chapter. In this case, Hsg Standards (Housing Standards) will be nested as a subheading under the Geography row heading. Step 2: Choose where you wish to nest the Hsg Standards dimension. The dimension can be nested in any of the areas shown in the first figure of the chapter. In this case, the dimension will be nested as a row sub-heading under Geography. Figure 2.7: Example of what dimensions look like when they are about to be nested Step 3: A thick yellow line will appear where the dimension will be nested. When this line appears in the appropriate place, release the dimension from being dragged. Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation 11

12 The new table will load automatically, with Figure 2.8 below, as the result. The table now shows the Geography dimension (Canada, Newfoundland, etc.) further broken down by the Hsg Standards dimension (showing data on housing standards Above Standards, Below Standards, by type of standard, etc.) Figure 2.8: Hsg Standards has been nested as a row heading under Geography 12 Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation

13 CHAPTER THREE ITEM SELECTION a) Introduction An Item is part of a Dimension. The Year dimension, for example, is made up of three items: 2001, 1996 and Sometimes you may want your customized table to show only some of the items included in a dimension. For example, you may only want to show housing data for 2001, and hide the data for 1996 and This chapter demonstrates how to modify a dimension, in this case Hsg Standards, as we continue to work to prepare our table to look like the one in Figure 1.2, by choosing which items will be displayed and which ones will be hidden. b) Item Selection Step 1: To begin the Item Selection, you must first access the Items List. The easiest way to do this is to click on the dimension s name. The title for each dimension, in this case, Hsg Standards, acts as a direct link to the Items List. Click on the Dimension Name to Move to the Items List View. Figure 3.1: Demonstration of how to access the Items List from the HiCO Table View on the WDS Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation 13

14 Figure 3.2, below, details what the Items List will look like for Hsg Standards. Before continuing, take some time to review the features highlighted in Figure 3.2. Table View Button Chart View Button Expand all Items Button Collapse all Items Button Dimensions Used as Column Headings Dimensions Used as Row Headings The Items Other Dimensions Collapse/Expand Button Variable with Items Listed Figure 3.2: Layout of the HiCO Items List on the WDS 14 Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation

15 Step 2: Using the Expand buttons, as indicated in Figure 3.3, ensure all the items listed for Hsg Standards are visible. To do this, click on the Expand All button. This will expand all headings and sub-headings listed under the Total All houses regardless of standards heading. Expand all Button: Allows You to Expand the Entire Item List Collapse all Button: Allows You to Collapse the Entire Item list Collapse Button: Allows You to Collapse Parts of the Item List Expand Button: Allows You to Expand Parts of the Item List Figure 3.3: Elements to click on to expand and collapse item lists Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation 15

16 Step 3: Individually deselect the items Below Affordability Standard, Below Adequacy Standard and Below Suitability Standard. Clicking on the boxes for each type of housing standard will remove the checkmarks, as seen in Figure 3.4. To reselect an item, simply click on the box for the checkmark to reappear. Selecting an item will display it in the table. Deselecting the item hides it from view in the table. Deselecting an item does not delete it from the database, but simply hides the item from view, until it is selected for viewing once again. Step 4: Click on the Table View Button to return to the table. When the table loads, the deselected items will be hidden from view. Our table now very closely resembles the table in Figure 1.2, which we are working towards completing. Table View Button Select/Deselect Individual Items Figure 3.4: Deselecting Items then Reloading the Table 16 Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation

17 CHAPTER FOUR USING THE OTHER DIMENSIONS TO CONTROL THE HOUSEHOLDS EXAMINED a) Introduction As shown in Figure 4.1 below, the table now very closely resembles the table in Figure 1.2. The Geography and Hsg Standards dimensions both have the same row headings as in Figure 1.2 and the only column headings are from the Household Data dimension. However, upon closer examination, we can see that the data in the tables do not match. In Figure 4.1, there are a total of 10,805,615 households shown under the Household Count column for Canada, but only 3,575,950 households shown in the same column in Figure 1.2. The data in the two tables are different because the view in Figure 4.1 shows data on all households while Figure 1.2 shows data only for renter households. Chapter 4 will demonstrate how to change the households examined from all households to Renters without changing the row or column headings in the table. While there are a few ways to change the households being examined, the easiest way is to cycle through the items of the Tenure dimension, while staying in the table view. b) How to do it It is important to be able to change the households examined in the table without manipulating row and column headings or changing the visible items. The Other dimensions are the key to controlling what households are examined in the table. By cycling through the items of these dimensions, you are able to change the group of households examined without changing the table (by nesting or replacing dimensions) or reducing the number of visible items (by selecting or deselecting the Items List). Figure 4.1: The row and column headings match, but the data are different. Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation 17

18 Clicking on the Previous Item and Next Item arrows (the little black triangles indicated in Figure 4.2) allows you to cycle through the visible items in the Other dimension. The arrows are situated in the dimension box, below the name of the dimension and to the right of the current item displayed. Simply click one of the arrows for the Tenure dimension until the item Renters appears. Note: The table will automatically reload every time a Next Item arrow or a Previous Item arrow is used. By cycling through the items of the Tenure dimension, the households examined now includes only Renters, and Figure 4.3 now completely matches Figure 1.2. Name of Other Dimension Current Item Displayed Next Item and Previous Item Arrows Figure 4.2: The Dimension Box in the Other Dimensions Figure 4.3: Finished product 18 Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation

19 CHAPTER FIVE DO-IT-YOURSELF EXERCISE Now that you ve followed the guide to produce a custom table, here s an exercise for you to try on your own. Suppose you want to identify households in Canada that are in core housing need, and you want to analyze them by Housing Standards (Total, All Households, and Total, Below Standards) and by Urban total, Rural total, the total for Census Metropolitan Areas (CMAs), and the total for Census Agglomerations (CAs), for 2001, 1996 and Using the Moving, Replacing, Nesting and Item Selection functions, go from the basic view (Figure 5.1) to the final view (Figure 5.2) to produce the abovementioned custom table. If you are not already there, the default view can be accessed by selecting Reset Default View in the Actions menu. Figure 5.1: Table view of HiCO: Start Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation 19
