    How to use/visualize the U.S. Census data provided by data.world?

    Lorentz Yeung

      Hello guys,


      I am doing my master degree project which is about the strategy of Amazon, and so i would like to pull some US census data for analysis. For some reasons, maybe because i am located in Hong Kong, I can't access the FactFinder website. After hours of googling , i found that data.world may have something i can leverage. After following the instruction here, https://help.data.world/hc/en-us/articles/115010298907-Tableau-Web-Data-Connector , and by making use of the Web Data Connector, i am a able to "pull" something from data.world to my Tableau successfully. However, i am stuck there after. It looks like i need to use the 01_TableKey, and 02_ColumnKey things to really visualize the data.

      I tried to download the data batch to my local drive too, but stuck at the same stage.

      any advise is appreciated.


      By the way, is there any place i can download some US census data file other than the official sites?
