#MakeoverMonday – Week 21

This week we reviewed an article published by the BBC, “Are Britons falling out of love with booze?”. The article reveals, a decline in the number of alcoholic beverages consumed; this is most prevalent in young people (age 16 to 24). Inspired by charts seen in The Economist, I chose to display the data with a horizontally stacked bar charts. Using Tableau to create my horizontal stacked bar charts, I then applied a “Percentage of Total” (Table Calculation), computed using the number of drinks each participant had had the week prior to the polling. By adding the table calculation it enabled the bar to fill to 100%, representing the entire sample population.
