If you create maps and reports in SimplyMap and incorporate them in a website, book, or PowerPoint presentation, you will need to cite the information in APA stye. Here are some examples of how to do this:

     Geographic Research, Inc. (2011). EASI/MRI Consumer Expenditure Data 2010 retrieved February 17th, 2011, from SimplyMap database.

     Geographic Research, Inc. (2011). Census 2010 Current Estimates Data retrieved February 17th, 2011, from SimplyMap database.

     Geographic Research, Inc. (2011). Map with 2010 Consumer Expenditure Data retrieved February 17th, 2011, from SimplyMap database.

If you are not sure of the name and date of the variable you are using, you can View Metadata. Refer to Where can I find more information about a specific data variable FAQ.
