Cross tabulation or x-tab reports present select slices of data in a matrix format making it easier to visualize patterns and explore similarities and differences between categoric variables. In this project, you will gain hands-on experience cutting through the noise in a data set by creating crosstab reports to methodically compare the differences between groups. You will also understand how cutting through the group differences will aid in gaining insights that a business can use for decision-making. By the end of this project, you will be able to further your business intelligence goals by confidently creating cross tabulation reports to cut through the complexity of survey data to highlight only meaningful group differences. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.


Some familiarity with spreadsheet software is helpful.
