The Looker State Data block will allow you to analyze and visualize state or historical data. This can be useful for running time series analysis, identifying trends and accurately reflecting the history of the data.

State data, also known as slowly changing dimensions(SCDs) are specific types of data that can change over time at any moment. With the proper table schema, we can use Looker to establish a structure that can not only identify the current state of a record, but also provide historical record keeping of any previous states of that record. Use this Block to conduct deep dive analysis on how data has historically changed over time, or to run time series analysis over historical data and lay the groundwork for a predictive model.
