This was confusing, but I think I see what is going on now.
I loaded 3 shp files. I downloaded:
I unzipped these and opened the shp files in them (using Layer -> 'Add Vector Layer...')
I have them displaying with different colors and flipped through the various layers.
What is wrong is this. If I check the ELSD layer but select the UNSD layer in the layer browser list, then when I use the 'Identify Feature' tool, it identifies the UNSD shapes even though I cannot see them. I am looking, in the map, at only the ELSD shapes.
See the screen shot enclosed. The shapes displayed are ELSD but the tl_2015_06_scsd layer has been selected in the layer browser and the selected area in the map and the 'Identify Results' info is for a SCSD.
If all I can see at the present moment are the ELSD shapes, then when I click on a shape, that is the shape that the tool should act on. Anything else seems non-obvious. The fact that the UNSD layer is selected in the browser should be irrelevant if the UNSD shapes are not being displayed.
In the second screen shot, it seems even clearer. The shape being described in the 'Filter Results' is not drawn on the map at all.
