Why census tracts? Good question. Census tracts are the lowest level of reasonably reliable data from the five-year American Community Survey, produced annually by the U.S. Census Bureau. Your data are the most recent (released in December 2017) 2012-2016 American Community Survey. The data represent demographic estimates for that five-year period.

Now, on to instructions for getting your data up and running in Tableau.

1.      Unpack your data into a folder of your choosing.

2.      Open your workbook in Tableau 10.5.
