Tableau – Pareto Chart

A Pareto chart consists of two graphs, such as bar graph and line graph. The same measure is used to create the graph, but the measure values are handled differently.

In Tableau, the purpose of using the Pareto Chart is to identify the contribution of members present in a field.

For example, the data source such as Sample-Superstore, the measure Profit contributed by different dimension, i.e., Sub-Category of products which can be analyzed using the Pareto Chart.

It shows the top members and their contribution. Here is the procedure to create a Pareto Chart as given below.10.2M170Hello Java Program for Beginners
