Before you can do this exercise, you'll need to download and unzip this file (if you have any problems doing this, click here for help).

You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.

Create a new Power BI report, and load into it data from both worksheets in the workbook in the folder above:

Model view of tables

You should see this in Model View.

Hide and rename columns to get a simpler data model:

Field list

Hide some columns, and rename the U.S. viewers (millions) column to get a tidier data model, as shown here.

 
 

Create a table to show average viewers by season:

Field well again

Initially your table should show these columns in the field well.

 
 

Delete the extra date hierarchy fields added by Power BI to show the average viewers by season/year:

Average viewers by year

A table showing the average number of viewers of Games of Thrones episodes by season and year when first aired.

 

Format your table so that it looks prettier (it absolutely doesn't have to look like the example below!):

The formatted table

These are suggestions only! Someone has made changes to parts of the Title, Total and Column headers format sections for the table.

Save this report as GOT it.pbix, then close it down.
