2.3 Using the Field Calculator

Use the field calculator to populate attribute fields. To populate a large number of features with the same attribute data simply select those features and "field calculate" this data. You can also use the field calculator to generate new data based on existing data. For example, in one of the exercises you will calculate population growth by comparing population statistics in 2000 and 2006.
