so be sure to add the project 'bigquery-public-data' to the Project area once you have accepted all the google screens. When I first clicked into that database link, it took me through a few screens to enable the data for 'My Project'. Quickly I was able to create a list of Provider States for Avg total Payments for Outpatient Charges from 2014. Sorted by State.
I don't think you will be able to use it but here is a workbook from Tableau 10.1.3 connected to this data set as well. I think you will need to be sure your own credentials have access and that you have accepted the google terms/conditions screens.
Hopefully that helps you get going.
Thanks Patrick. I will try that out. By the way, did you mean to attach a workbook? I didn't see anything attache.
