    How do I create user-selected variable sets?

    Danielle Cummings

      I'm new to Tableau and have a question that is probably very simple, but the solution is evading me:


      I'd like to create a simple bar chart with a drop-down box that allows the user to display data by demographic category (gender, grade, etc).  My data are structured such that all demographic variables (i.e., female, male, 9th grade, 10th grade, etc.) are in the measure "demographic."  I'd like to cluster my variables so that when the user selects 'Gender,' female and male data are displayed, when the user selects 'Grade,' 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade data are displayed, etc.  I'd like these choices to be displayed in a drop-down box.  Please help!
