Visual Fact Book
The Capital University Visual Fact Book (VFB) is provided to the campus community by the Office of Institutional Research (OIR). The VFB is intended to be used as a companion to Capital’s annual Fact Book, not as a replacement. The visualizations, or vizzes, presented in the VFB are representations of tables and charts that are found in the Fact Book, but in many instances, the data presented are richer and more robust because of the interactive capabilities of Tableau Public. Data trends and patterns can be seen much more easily and in ways that are different from the static tables and charts found in the Fact Book. As a way to enhance the VFB experience for viewers, the OIR is offering the following Tableau Tips. Viewers are strongly encouraged to keep these tips in mind when exploring the VFB.
The visualizations currently available in the Visual Fact Book are listed below. Please be aware that some visualizations have several dashboards included in them. You will see these individual dashboards listed underneath the title of the visualizations. They are not linked individually, but they are all accessible by clicking on the title of the “main” visualization. Each of the individual dashboards has its own tab in the visualization.
Please feel free to contact Larry Hunter in the Office of Institutional Research if you have any questions about Tableau or the information contained in the visualizations.View the Capital University Visual Fact Book
