Filled map used to be correct and is now wrong

Hey everyone! 


I had a power bi desktop project that I have been monitoring for the last few months.  In this project I use a filled map to generate a choropleth to measure population densities.  Ever since the February release my visualizations have changed and the data had no changes.  


Is there a different data structure I need to follow other than "County, State" to visualize the county level data?  If this is not the case is there a workaround? 


I am not able to utilize the ARC GIS map for this project.  I can utilize the shape map, but I cant seem to find a shapefile at the state level for my specific states.  If I am overlooking a possible solution I am more than willing to try it. 





Is your Data Category properly set to County, or is it Uncategorized (or some other option)?
