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.  Load the worksheets from the workbook in the above folder, and use them to create a data model:

Cleaned data model

Your data model should only include columns you might want to display in reports.


Now create a table and matrix, such that when you click on a continent (such as Africa for this example) you see the number of events in each of its countries, by year:

Number of events

Your matrix should count the number of events for each year and country.

Save this report as Out of Africa, then close it down.
