Thanksgiving is just around the corner and before we all leave to enjoy some delicious turkey dinners, we wanted to share some visualizations we created in the past to celebrate this holiday.

Last year around this time we tried to answer two questions: Where do turkeys come from and where do they go? The results were a Power Map tour and a Power View dashboard that showed turkey production and consumption in the US. We imported the following public datasets to Excel: ERS’ Quarterly Food at Home for estimating fresh/frozen poultry consumption between October and December, US population by region and state, and ERS’s turkey production by state. We also created a behind the scenes tour to show how we built everything with Excel and Power BI.

Enjoy and have a happy Thanksgiving from the Power BI team!
