About This Class

This class is Part 3 of a three-part series covering data analysis with Excel PivotTables and PivotCharts.

PivotTables are an absolutely essential tool for anyone working with data in Microsoft Excel. Pivots allow you to quickly explore and analyze raw data, reveal powerful insights and trends otherwise buried in the noise, and provide fast, accurate and intuitive solutions to even the most complicated questions.

Part 3 is the final section of the course, where we'll tie together everything we've learned in Part 1 and Part 2 and apply it to advanced, real-world case studies!

We'll explore and analyze actual datasets from a number of case studies, including:

  • U.S. voter demographics (2012)
  • San Francisco salaries
  • Shark attack records from 1900-2016
  • Daily stock market performance
  • Baseball team stats
  • San Diego burrito ratings
  • Daily weather conditions
  • Spartan Race Facebook posts


  • Microsoft Excel (2010, 2013, 2016), ideally for PC
  • Mac users are welcome, but note that the PivotTable interface varies across platforms
  • Basic experience with Excel functionality (charts & formulas a plus!)
