Project Description

Increase your Happiness!

Dataset for the project is found here.

Check out the three "Haptracker" videos to walk through the entire process from start-to-finish by tracking something simple yet important: your happiness.  In this project, you will:

  • Use a simple app to gather data
  • Leverage a spreadsheet to store data
  • Build a dashboard using Tableau Public
  • Evaluate findings to determine strategies to increase your happiness

All dashboards can be saved on Tableau Public, an open-source community that allows sharing of work. You are welcome to share your process, visualizations, and conclusions in the project page.

Feel free to track other topics as well - this process can be used to track anything, not just happiness!
