## Calculate Z score with a single column of data that has multiple metrics

Hi,

I have a table that has a Metric Name column that consists multiple metrics and a Metric Value column. I want to calculate the z score for the data within each of the AAA, BBB, and CCC metric. As I actually have hundreds of metric to deal with in reality, I wonder if I can calculate the z score in one single column and then use a filter to look at one single metric when I built the dashboard? Or is there a better way to do it in Power BI? I guess I could also pivot the table to get three seperate columns for AAA, BBB, and CCC, but then I'll have to write the same formula three times, too tedious. Any advice? Thanks.

 Metric Name Metirc Value AAA 1.52 AAA 1.90 AAA 0.98 AAA 1.95 AAA 9.38 AAA 1.68 AAA 4.98 AAA 8.33 AAA 3.29 AAA 9.98 BBB 9.71 BBB 6.52 BBB 9.60 BBB 8.17 BBB 9.89 BBB 4.62 BBB 6.77 BBB 1.38 BBB 5.31 BBB 5.57 CCC 8.75 CCC 2.17 CCC 4.00 CCC 2.74 CCC 9.25 CCC 2.71 CCC 6.99 CCC 9.60 CCC 0.89 CCC 6.94

## Re: Calculate Z score with a single column of data that has multiple metrics

Hi,@wsspglobal,

yes, you can:

```z score =
var _metric = CALCULATE(SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[Metric Name]))
var _sampleMean = CALCULATE(AVERAGE('Table'[Metric Value]);FILTER(ALL('Table');'Table'[Metric Name]=_metric))
var _sampleSD = CALCULATE(STDEV.S('Table'[Metric Value]);FILTER(ALL('Table');'Table'[Metric Name]=_metric))
return
DIVIDE('Table'[Metric Value]-_sampleMean;_sampleSD)```

Cheers,

## Re: Calculate Z score with a single column of data that has multiple metrics

Hi @wsspglobal ,

You can create column or measure like DAX below.

```Column1= CALCULATE(SUM(Table1[Metric Value]),FILTER(ALLSELECTED(Table1), Table1[Metric Name] =EARLIER(Table1[Metric Name])))

Measure1= CALCULATE(SUM(Table1[Metric Value]),FILTER(ALLSELECTED(Table1),Table1[Metric Name]=MAX(Table1[Metric Name])))```

## Re: Calculate Z score with a single column of data that has multiple metrics

I can't type the last part:

`DIVIDE('Table'[Metric Value]-_sampleMean;_sampleSD)`

It seems like I cannot call out a column within DIVIDE. When I tried to call 'Table'[Metric Value], I can't. Please advise. Thank you!

## Re: Calculate Z score with a single column of data that has multiple metrics

Sorry, I forgot to mention that this would be the code for a calculated column. Are you trying to do it as a measure?

Hi  @sturlaws,

Yes, I was. How can I do it in a measure?

## Re: Calculate Z score with a single column of data that has multiple metrics

```z score measure =
VAR _metric =
CALCULATE ( SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Table'[Metric Name] ) )
VAR _sampleMean =
CALCULATE (
AVERAGE ( 'Table'[Metric Value] );
FILTER ( ALL ( 'Table' ); 'Table'[Metric Name] = _metric )
)
VAR _sampleSD =
CALCULATE (
STDEV.S ( 'Table'[Metric Value] );
FILTER ( ALL ( 'Table' ); 'Table'[Metric Name] = _metric )
)
RETURN
DIVIDE (
SUMX ( VALUES ( 'Table'[Metric Value] ); SUM ( 'Table'[Metric Value] ) ) - _sampleMean;
_sampleSD
)```
