## Average from Measure

HI, I need help...

I have 12 DAX to calculated a percent , my measure dax look like:

percent1 = iferror(sum(pass1)/sum(pass1)+sum(fail1)),"-")

percent2 = iferror(sum(pass2)/sum(pass2)+sum(fail2)),"-")

percent3 = iferror(sum(pass3)/sum(pass3)+sum(fail3)),"-")

percent4 = iferror(sum(pass4)/sum(pass4)+sum(fail4)),"-")

.

.

.

percent12 = iferror(sum(pass12)/sum(pass12)+sum(fail12)),"-")

I need to calculated the average of all percents from those measure.
PERCENT-AVG = AVERAGEIF(B2:B13,"<>""""")

Any suggestion... Thanks 2 ACCEPTED SOLUTIONS Anonymous

Easiest way i can think of is this:

```Average Rate1 = DIVIDE(
[Percent Rate1] + [Percent Rate2] + [Percent Rate3],
if(
[Percent Rate1] > 0,
1,
0
) + if(
[Percent Rate2] > 0,
1,
0
) + if(
[Percent Rate3] > 0,
1,
0
)
)```  Super User

Hi there, I could suggest a modification to @Anonymous measure.

```Average Rate1 =
Var PercentRate1 = IF([Percent Rate1]>0,1,0)
Var PercentRate2 = IF([Percent Rate2]>0,1,0)
Var PercentRate3 = IF([Percent Rate3]>0,1,0)Var PercentRates = PercentRate1 + PercentRate2 + PercentRate3

DIVIDE(
[Percent Rate1] + [Percent Rate2] + [Percent Rate3],
PercentRates
)```

This just uses variables and puts them into a logical order, and then makes it easier to change it or update it going forward.

What you could also do to add onto @Anonymous

Is have a measure counting the Rows where you have a percentage measure called Percent

`Count Rows = IF(ISBLANK([Percent]),BLANK,COUNTROWS('TableName'))`

And then you could add this to the existing measure and replace the / 12 with / [Count Rows]

HI @GilbertQ and @Anonymous:

Thanks for answer, but, each percent is a individual measure, and when one of this percent is blank (NaN) can't included. Excel have AVERAGEIF.  Super User

I would suggest then using the DIVIDE function which caters for NaN

HI, thank @GilbertQ and @Anonymous for you answer, but may be i don't explain well.

My data is like that:

(measure) Percent Rate1 = sum(pass1)/(sum(pass1)+sum(fail1)) - i have many other columns with Fail1&Pass1, Fail2&Pass2, Fail3&Pass3,.....), using the same formula for each Pass&Fail.

I have: Percent Rate1, Percent Rate2, ......

I need then to calculate the Average of all this Percent Rates, Sometime i got CERO in some Percent Rate and I need to excluded those.

Any help will be VERY VERY Apreciate...  Anonymous

```Percent Rate1 = DIVIDE(
sum(pass1),
(sum(pass1) + sum(fail1)
)```

For each rate.

Now create a measure which is:

```Average Rate1 = DIVIDE(
[Percent Rate1] + [Percent Rate2] + [Percent Rate3],
3
)```

(This example uses 3 instead of 12, but you can modify.  Helper II

HI @Anonymous, thanks!!! very happy!! Sorry but I have one question....

Those PassRate are related with a Date Filter...

Example:

Q1 - PR1 = 89%, PR2=99%, PR3=76%, PR4=0%, PR5=88% I need to exclude 0% from the average, divide by 4

Q2 - PR1 = 90%, PR2=65%, PR3=0%, PR4=0%, PR5=43%  I need to exclude 0's% from the average divide by 3

Is this possible? Have a dinamic average? Anonymous

Can you post a screenshot of the measure?

Sorry for the delay @GilbertQ, this is the error...

Average RATE =

Hello Guys

Can you help me pls?

I have the table

Month AVG_Time

1         154

2         126

3         128

4         159

avg       141.75

I would like to know the average of the following AVG_Time (141.75), but the problem is the quantity of months are variable, depending how many months i selected in the slicer

is there a way to calculate this measure?  Super User

This measure below should work for you.

```Average from Measure =
DIVIDE(sum('TableName'[Avg_Time),DISTINCTCOUNT('TableName'[Month]))```

The above will just count the number of months selected and divide it by the Total in your AVG_Time column.

My [Avg_Time] is a measure and when i tried to replicate your formula, my measure is not available.

Do you know why?  Super User

Below is the updated measure

```Average from Measure =
DIVIDE([Avg_Time],DISTINCTCOUNT('TableName'[Month]))```

For some reason, its not working properly. Its showing a value = 43.77 instead of 141.72.

is there a way to sum of the average?  Helper II

Thanks @GilbertQ @Anonymous, I will try both suggest, and let you know the result. Anonymous

Good suggestion @GilbertQ! Anonymous

Does

`PERCENTAVG = ([Percent1] + [Percent2] + [Percent3] +... + [Percent12]) / 12`

Not work for you?
