    Using text descriptions of numeric data values representing ethnicity in a filter

    Bill Schuetz

      I have a large dataset that uses 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7, etc. to represent different ethnic groups.  Instead of showing numbers in the filter, I like to display text.

      For example: 0= Latino, 1= Black, 2= Pacific Islander, etc.  Thus in the filter box, I just want users to be able to select based on the ethnicity

      I'm relatively new to Tableau and don't know how to do this without replacing all the data values in the data set.  I want to create a dashboard that will filter

      based on ethnicity using the text rather than the numeric values that are in the dataset.  Is there an easy way to do this in Tableau desktop?
