I know this should be very simple, but something is just not working right.  I have 128,000 records/people in my query.  I want to display the count of how many people live in each state.  I've gone through mapping videos and written tutorials thinking I'm missing something because every time I run the map it is just putting a sequence number from 1 -53 on each state.  So instead of there being maybe 42,000 in X state, it shows 27 OR I get nothing on the map.    BTW, when I preview the map it is also just gray instead of color as I've selected.

Here are the steps I'm doing (not each step detailed, but major ones)
 - I'm using the map gallery and doing a USA by state exploded
 - I select a color analytical map
 - I select my dataset
 - I match the STUSPS to the state abbreviation
 - For the field to visualize I select count(state) - but have also tried counting the unique identifier for each person
 - I display the labels - depending on what I put here I either see nothing on the map or I see what looks like a sequential number on each state

This is driving me crazy!

I understand what looked like the sequence number and have changed that to the 2 character state abbreviation.  The color coding still does not match reality.  For example, both ND and MN should have the largest number of people, but ND is in the smallest group.  I also want to display the actual count of people - not sure how to do that.  So I think I understand it a bit better, but it is still wrong.

I've watched more videos and walked through some more step by steps.  I definitely understand what needs to be done now and how to get the counts on the map.  The only remaining issue is that the map never renders - it is just gray with no data.  I'm including 5 lines of the dataset - the first 4 fields are just ones that I used to select the names I needed (deceased, inactive, no valid address and is a constituent.  The other is the state and the unique id of the record.  I've also done a table using this dataset and it works fine.

The issue turned out to be extra spaces at the end of the state.

No one had come up with the solution - I stumbled on it so wanted to publish the answer and close the case.
