    How to show percentile markers / probability distribution on a bar chart?

    Sarah Jellenc

      Hello! Let me preface by saying that I am a complete Tableau novice, so any and all guidance is appreciated!


      I’m making a dashboard about outcomes from an animal shelter. The Breed Distribution sheet has a vertical bar chart showing the number of adoptions of each breed of animal. Is it possible to create a curved line along the top of the bar chart showing percentile markers? (I think what I’m asking is how to represent a probability distribution curve?)


      For example, it would be nice to be able to see that the top [x number] of breeds make up [y]% of all adoptions. Something like the image attached.


      I'm using Tableau Public 2018.2.2.
