How to Build a Pareto Chart with Tableau

Step 1:

Drag sum(sales) onto the row shelf. Add your dimension to the column shelf. In this case, we’re using state.

Step 2:

Sort your states largest to smallest. Hold the control key down and copy your sales pill.

Step 3:

Add a quick table calculation for running total.

Step 4:

Open the table calculation and add a secondary calculation. Choose percent of total.

Step 5:

Change your row pills to a dual axis, and update your colors.
