AFLM Team Demographics Dashboards

List management and the strategies that go into it is undoubtedly my favourite niche footy topic.

In recent years I have found it helpful to break down games played and coaches votes by player age as a means of analysing the overall position of a team’s playing list. Here you can find two Tableau dashboards you can use to do the same.

The dashboards contain data for every team from 2012 to the present. They will be continually updated as future seasons progress, and I intend to add more past data in the near future also.

Player ages are the age the player turns on their birthday in the year of the selected season. Ages 35 and over have been rolled into ‘35+’.

Breakdown

The breakdown dashboard is designed for looking at detailed data on a single team.

To use the breakdown dashboard, select from the dropdown filters for Team, Season and Display. Display controls whether the values shown on the dashboard are totals or proportions.

Hovering over any bar in the graphs will show a tooltip describing the data that bar represents.

Comparison

The comparion dashboard is designed for making comparisons between many teams.

To use the comparison dashboard, select from the dropdown filters for Season and Display. Drag either end of the slider to increase or narrow the range of ages displayed on the dashboard.

Hovering over any bar in the graphs will show a tooltip describing the data that bar represents.
