Georgia Exports – On Track for Topping $40 Billion in 2018

Export goods originating from Georgia reached an all-time high-mark of $39.4 billion in 2014. As a state, Georgia has been trying to exceed that banner year ever since.  Recent talk of tariffs and revisions to NAFTA have caused many Georgians to wonder what effect this may have on our economy.  We will have to wait until February 2019 for the US Census Bureau to publish complete 2018 export totals. But currently available data can help us understand the role that exports have in Georgia's economy and what countries dominate as our trade partners.

DAT207x - Analyzing and Visualizing Data with PowerBI

The course "Analyzing and Visualizing Data with PowerBI" is devoted to showing the capabilities of this Microsoft tool. For those who have worked previously with Excel, Microsoft Access or SQL Server Reporting Services -- the video demonstration of PowerBI capabilities will cause you to repeatedly think "wow -- that is slick." As an example, pictured below is one of the dashboards created as part of the course.
