The marketing manager has asked you to analyze income data for Arizona residents so that leaders in his department can determine the company’s advertising strategy. The marketing manager intends to share this data with other decisions makers and the marketing department staff so that everyone has a thorough understanding of how the income information can be used to determine specific target markets in upcoming advertising campaigns. Because most of these individuals do not have a strong understanding of analytics, they must be able gain the information listed below from studying the charts. In the data story, use visualizations, heat maps, boxplots, etc. to describe the following:
Demonstrate the ability to communicate the analytics story to key stakeholders, including the marketing manager, by creating a 6-10 slide PowerPoint presentation (with speaker notes for each slide). Use the charts generated in Tableau to illustrate the data story as it relates to the income of Arizona residents. The slides and speaker notes should address the following for each chart presented.

IT MUST HAVE COMPLETE SPEAKER NOTES… THIS PRESENTATION WILL BE PRESENTED… THERE MUST BE ALOT OF GOOD WRITING PER SLIDE IN THE SPEAKER NOTES. PART 3... ON A WORD DOCUMENT PLEASE ANSWER EACH OF THESE QUESTIONS IN 150-250 WORDS. QUESTION 1 – Data is useless without the skills to manipulate, summarize, and analyze it. In fact, even after data is summarized into a reporting format such as graphs and tables, it still requires someone to add context and describe the results to fully explain the data. This can be difficult, especially if data is being presented to nontechnical individuals. Describe two techniques that can be used to better describe analysis results to nontechnical individuals. QUESTION 2-When most people think about data reporting or visualization, they think about a nicely crafted graph that will not be interactive with a user. Some new tools, such as Tableau, can create visualizations that can interact with a user with informative pop-up information, more drill-down information, and the ability to export filtered results. Describe two benefits to having a user interact with a standard report. Are there any drawbacks if the user modifies the report?
