Course Description

Use Built-in Statistical Functions

Take your reporting skills to the next level with Tableau’s built-in statistical functions.

Perform EDA and Create Regression Models

Using drag and drop analytics, you'll learn how to perform univariate and bivariate exploratory data analysis and create regression models to spot hidden trends.

Apply Machine Learning Techniques

Working with real-world datasets, you’ll also use machine learning techniques such as clustering and forecasting. It’s time to dig deeper into your data!

    Univariate exploratory data analysis

    Free

    Exploratory data analysis, or EDA, is a fundamental step when doing data research. Getting the first insights of your data is easy in Tableau: you’ll be creating and interpreting tables, bar plots, histograms, and box plots in no time!

    Measures of spread and confidence intervals

    In this more conceptual chapter, you’ll dive deeper into the use of different measures of center and spread, and how they should be used in Tableau. You’ll learn about the use of the summary card, the difference between sample and population, and how variance, standard deviation, and confidence intervals can be calculated and visualized.

    Bivariate exploratory data analysis

    It's time to look at two variables at a time. Describing the relationship between two variables, or regression, is a great way to spot trends in your data. You'll learn how to find the best trend line, describe the trend model, and predict future observations, using dinosaur data!

    Forecasting and clustering

    In this last chapter, you’ll explore two more advanced statistical techniques: forecasting and clustering. Forecasting helps you detect recurring patterns in your time-series data, and can predict how these patterns will change in the future. With clustering, you’re able to detect patterns in unlabeled data, allowing you to slice and dice your dataset to reveal hidden insights.

    Great content! Excellent practice examples.

    This course is by WAY FAR the best in the whole skill track on learning tableau. So much so that it should be the first course of the series. In it, you (properly) learn how to create the graphics/tables. this would have been of great help for the other courses where you had no idea what to do because you did not have enough preparation to do the exercise. Definitely the best course of the series and many courses of the tableau skill track should be remade using that template.
