The world as 100 people

This week for Makeover monday week 48 we were asked to visualise data from The world as 100 people

To keep with my Tableau tradition, I decided to learn a new trick.

This week I wanted to learn how to make Waffle Charts.

I found a  great tutorial from Andy’s Tableau tip Tuesday


What worked:

  • Getting the waffle template was pretty straightforward
  • Data was quite simple to use

Where I struggled:

  • When I brought the real data set and had to create the few calculations


  • Luckily Charlie Hutcheson came to the rescue and via Twitter guided me through the process and got my calc worked out
  • the next step was vis layout, colors..
