This article describes how to go from a data table like this...
...to a state where the data is visualized as a Sankey diagram:
You will need any of the following:
- At least two variables of any type.
- An input table using at least two variables.
- Values typed or copied into a table manually with at least two columns.
- From the toolbar, go to Visualization > Exotic > Sankey.
- In the object inspector, go to Inputs > DATA SOURCE, select the type of data source you wish to use to create the Sankey diagram.
- If you wish to use an existing table go to Input table and select the desired table from the drop-down menu.
- If you wish to use variables go to Variables and select the desired variables from the drop-down menu. Alternatively, you can drag and drop the variables from the Data Sets tree into the menu itself.
- To input the data manually, select Paste or type table. A new dialog box window will open where you can paste or type in your data. Note that the table must have at least two columns.
- Select Calculate.
- OPTIONAL: Specify the maximum number of categories by entering a number in Maximum number of categories.
OPTIONAL: You can customize the look of the diagram by going to the object inspector > Chart and adjusting the settings for APPEARANCE, LABELS, and HOVERTEXT.
