Hey there Gene,
I haven't taken a deep dive on this one question. I have seen thousands of charts/ tables/ and presentations that are all internal, external charts are very hard to find. One request that I have heard from lots of government Tableau users is the ability to publish their data out to Tableau Public. The governance behind all this is an amazing lift though. The only person I have seen do this is Adam Crahen. Adam has gone through lots of steps to make his work public and to add it to official external reports to Congress. For a sample take a look at his Dept of Interior public profile here: Tableau Public
I am sure there are other samples out there but I think Adam has gotten pretty far. I will check around #Data16 to see if I can come up with more samples.
Thanks for the question,
Thanks. I did find a few. Some use tableau public, a few didn't. Thanks for checking.
I'm seeking the same information. If possible, could you share your findings and URLs for government sites disseminating data via Tableau Public, particularly those for federal agencies? Thanks!

So glad I dug into this user group forum. I was just going to start making visualizations very similar to the NCHS one. Now I am 95% done. Thanks, Gene!
Just read your post. I assume you're with a federal agency. I'm curious about your progress in disseminating visualizations via Tableau Public. I'm a NOAA employee trying to do the same. Trying to convince our leadership to take the same course as NCHS has. I'm told the resistance is due to IT policies on use of cloud data servers. Have you found any ways to get around these hurdles? Hope you're successful!
I have found government sites using Tableau by searching [site:"*.gov" "Tableau"] in Google. This search returns all .gov sites Google has in its index where Tableau is mentioned. By entering the hostname of the site (ie. site:"http://usa.gov" "Tableau") you can find all results within that site. The inverse method of searching [site:https://public.tableau.com ":gov"] also yields results that may be of use with some combing.
I have found without the quotes, Google will sometimes find pages where Tableau is not mentioned on the page but is embedded in the source code. I noticed this when searching APSC Tableau. This returned results (from an Australian browser) of dashboards hosted on the Australian Public Service Commission site.
If you wanted to reduce this to a fine art, you could find a search engine that finds source code and look for the embed links, for example: public.tableau.com. I couldn't quite get Google to look for only this.
Hope this is of use.
