A Day in the Life: Examining US Birth Rates

There are many data initiatives in the Tableau community, and I like to participate in them when I have time.  As a professional in healthcare, one of my favorites is #projectHealthViz.  Each month, Lindsay Betzendahl posts health-related data and invites the community to take a crack at visualizing it.  The December data set ended up sparking a very interesting data journey for me, and I thought it might be useful to share the thought process I went through on this project.
