If last month's #TableauDesignMonth was the pumpkin pie, this month's #TableauStatsMonth is the turkey dinner. The two go hand-in-hand, because we're big believers that data visualizations should be both clear and aesthetically pleasing. Kind of like Ford's "And not Or" ad campaign.
The whole purpose of Tableau Public is to share data in an interactive way with other people on the web. The more sharing, the better. Whether you're the original author of a visualization, or a reader who has discovered something amazing, we've tried to make it as easy as possible for you to spread the good word.
Data is everywhere. Sports data, data about politics, public health, money, pets, you name it. If there’s a subject you’re passionate about, there’s data for that.
