Crosstab in tableau
  • Last Updated : 01 Oct, 2020

In this article we will learn how to form a crosstab in tableau worksheet to do further operations. For this first look into two terms :

  • Tableau :  Tableau is a very powerful data visualization tool that can be used by data analysts, scientists, statisticians, etc. to visualize the data and get a clear opinion based on the data analysis. Tableau is very famous as it can take in data and produce the required data visualization output in a very short time.
  • Crosstab :  A crosstab is a table showing the relationship between two or more variables. Where the table only shows the relationship between two categorical variables, a crosstab is also known as a contingency table.

4) On clicking Sheet1 you will get whole dataset attributes on left side and a worksheet for work.

5) To draw a crosstab you have to select minimum two attributes( one in row and one in column) by drag and drop then select another attribute for mark option.
