    Search for your desired location in the "Enter Address, Zip Code, or City" field and press **Enter.**
    In **Step 1** of the sidebar that appears, select **Age.**
    In **Step 2** of the sidebar, you can choose between two *Data Types*. Let's click **Latest Data**.
    You can select what age range you would like to view. For this tutorial, we'll select **All.**
    We want to see recent age rates, so we'll keep the *Year* field at **2021**
    You can also change your *Data Boundary* from **Zip Code** to **City By Zip Code.** For this tutorial, select **City By Zip Code.**
    If all the filters fit your criteria, we're ready to view the data! Click **Generate Map.**
    On a yellow to purple scale, the map is colored so you can easily find the age distribution. **Hover** your mouse over the map to see more details.
    In **Step 3** of the sidebar, you can see the *Median Age* distribution by male and female. **Hover** over a bar to see the number of people in that age group in the city.
    You can add the generated data as a **Layer.** This will allow you to stack data types on your map. Let's click that now.
    Enter your *Layer Name* and click **Save.**
    You've finished finding the *Current Age Data*! Now press **Step 2** to find the *Change Over Time.*
    In **Step 2** of the sidebar, select the **Change Over Time** button.
    We'll keep the *Age Range* at **All.**
    To get a better picture of the *Change Over Time,* we'll compare **2017** to **2021**
    We'll keep viewing the *Data Boundary* with **City By Zip Code.** Let's **Generate the Map.**
    On a yellow to purple scale, you can easily find how the age groups in zip codes are trending. **Hover** your mouse over a zip code to view more details.
    Tip! Yellow means people below the age of 44 and below are dominating the area, and purple means people 45 and above are dominating the area.
    Let's add this map to our layers so we can compare it against other data types in the future.
    Enter your *Layer Name* and click **Save.**
