How Do I Create A Pivot Table To Summarize And Analyze My Data?

To create a pivot table in Google Sheets, follow these steps:

  1. Select the range of cells that you want to include in the pivot table. This should include the column headings and all of the data that you want to analyze.
  2. Click the “Data” dropdown in the toolbar, then select “Pivot table.”
  3. In the “Create Pivot Table” dialog, specify the cell range for the pivot table and choose where you want to place the pivot table on the sheet.
  4. In the “Rows” and “Columns” sections, drag and drop the column headings that you want to use as row labels or column labels.
  5. In the “Values” section, drag and drop the column heading that you want to use for the values. You can also specify a function, such as “SUM” or “AVERAGE,” to summarize the values.
  6. If you want to filter the data in the pivot table, use the “Filters” section to select the criteria that you want to use.
  7. When you are finished, click “OK” to create the pivot table.

Your pivot table will now be created and displayed on the sheet. You can use the pivot table to quickly summarize and analyze your data by dragging and dropping different fields into the rows, columns, and values sections. You can also use the pivot table options to customize the appearance and behavior of the table.
