    Mistake in Visualizing Monthly Population per Health Centre

    Mohamed Hersi

      Dear All,


      In my Excel data source, I have column called 'Monthly Population'. This the catchment population of the health centre (e.g. the people living in a village where the health centre is located).


      My Excel has i2016 data and over 100 health centres and the monthly population is repeated for 12 months (the reason being that there are monthly targets that are using it).


      The problem is that when I visualize this column, I get very large numbers (I think Tableau adds up all these repetitions). The only way I overcome this is through FILTER where I select only one month. But I would like to see if there is another way of doing this?
