Power BI | Charts exercise | Create a KPI, gauge and chart analysing crime statistics
This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
The answer to the exercise will be included and explained if you attend one of more of the courses listed below!
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.
Open the Power BI report in the above folder. It contains a list of all of the crimes reported in the area around our Manchester training room in 2018:
The area for the reported crimes.
Add a gauge to show the number of crimes with a target (invented!) of 4000 and a range from 0 to 5000:
Switch to the formatting properties of the gauge to set an absolute minimum and maximum value.
Now add a KPI to show the number of crimes by month:
The figure shown is the number of crimes for the final month in the period - for this visual there doesn't seem to be any obvious way of altering the number shown.
Finally, add a column chart comparing crime figures by category and quarter:
Do stacked column or bar charts actually reveal anything? Wise Owl aren't so sure ...
Save this report as Reported crime, and close it down.
