Dashboard Week Day 4: American Candy Survey

by Andy Kriebel

If there’s one thing Americans love, it’s candy. I should know, I have been known to have a bit of a sweet tooth. Reese’s are by far my favorite, with peanut M&Ms running a close second.

So for day 4, why not visualize survey data about candy? The four years of data comes from The Science Quarterly Review. I would highly recommend they read the article; it includes useful information about problems with the data.


  1. Download the data for all four years.
  2. If data prep is required, they are only allowed to use Tableau Prep.
  3. They are more than welcome to supplement it with additional data.
  4. They must build their dashboard via web authoring.
  5. Before 5pm, they must have their workflows completed, dashboards uploaded to Tableau Public, and blog posts written.

Good luck and don’t eat too much candy. It will rot your teeth.
