Compare and visualize several means

hi,

 

i've got survey data with different questions. Now i want to get several means of these questions on a chart.

if i put the items on a bar chart, then there is no space between the bars. and i can't use another visualization, a line chart won't work.

 

so i created a second data table in excel with the means of the question data to put them on a line chart.

 

question: is there the possibility to create a second data table in power bi with the means of my questions and connect it to the original one? so i can also use slicers based on factors of the first data set.

of course any other solution is appreciated.

 

looking forward for some help 🙂

@Stefan036 , you should unpivot your data in Query Editor first.  Instead of having five different questions in five different columns, you should have 2 columns...Question and Answer.  Then you can create a horizontal bar chart with the spacing you desire.  The "Question" column becomes the dimension and the answer column is the number that gets aggregated (in your case, as the average)

 

I recommend horizontal bar chart to a vertical column chart because the questions will be easier to read if the text is horizontal.

Re: Compare and visualize several means

Hello,

 

I'm not clear on what you are searching for; however, I've plotted a distribution and showed it mean before.  My recommedation would be to go the marketplace and use the custom app for a bar and whisker plot.  There are several of them.  They do the statistics automatically so there is no need for an additional table.
