[In-person] Tableau is one of the easiest and most flexible programs for visualizing and exploring data. This exploration stage of visualization is essential for finding the patterns in your data that you want to investigate and communicate to your audience. Likert scale survey data, where respondents have given answers on a scale about how much they agree with a statement, or how important something is to them (e.g. strongly disagree, disagree, neutral, agree, strongly agree) presents a wonderful example for learning intermediate Tableau skills! In this workshop we'll transform survey data from Qualtrics in preparation for visualization, join (relate) multiple tables in Tableau, and build some effective visualizations for Likert scale survey results.
