Mapping Consumer Spending variables

I was wondering the best way to map the consumer spending variables. In previous version of Business Analyst, the consumer spending variables were fields in the attribute tables for the Demographic Layers (BDS) -- block groups, tracts, counties, states, etc. I went to the layer properties for the States layer and want to create a map of Total Consumer Expenditures by state but the CEX variables are not part of the attribute table. 

Any suggestions or did I mess something up in the installation as the reason why the variables are not showing up?
