    Area chart showing median income by quintile

    Elsa van Latum

      Hi Tableau Community,


      I am interested in showing the year-to-year development of median income values by quintile in an area chart or stacked column. Essentially what I want to show is to what extent the income of higher income brackets is growing quicker than those in lower income brackets. I have the median income level for 10 years (2006-2016) for 5 geographies (the counties that New York City consists of). I am trying to create a graph similar to this one: https://www.google.com/search?q=median+income+by+quintile+area+chart&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjhk9DOjeLXAhUh…


      Attached you'll find the raw census data, as well as the data formatted to work with in Tableau. In Tableau, I filtered on one specific county (e.g. Bronx County), added 'Year' to Columns. From there on, I am not sure how to include all 5 income quintile data points into the table.


      If someone could help me out with this, it would be highly appreciated!


      Thank you very much in advance.
