Many feature layers in the ArcGIS Living Atlas contain features for a larger region than many analysts need.  A growing number of content items are added to the Living Atlas every day that have data for all tracts, counties, schools, hospitals, or parks in the whole United States.  Most GIS analysts only need to work with features for their own immediate area.  By applying filters to these national layers, you can subset only the features that you need.
