The Group Breakdowns are particularly useful when you want to compare sub-components of a grouping (e.g. if you wanted to compared data on individual colleges with one another you would use the "College Description" option in the Group Breakdown to see a breakdown of data for each of the colleges; likewise, if you wanted to compare data between male, female, and nonbinary students, you would use the "Gender" Group Breakdown).

Examples

For example, the Group Breakdown selectors on Enrollment (Census) dashboard pages allow users to select from Academic Units such as Colleges or Majors and Student Demographics such as Gender or Race / Ethnicity, among many others.
