Calculating Growth in a Matrix (adding a column)

Hi Hoping someone can help. I have some source data with thousands of records of events data including two columns which signify event segment and period. I've summarized these in a matrix and wish to add a column that shows the %age growth between the two periods.

 

I've provided an example set up of the table below (dummy data) - the ask here is to calculate the % growth between the two periods for each segment (period is just one column with two possible values: 'period 1 & period 2':

 

Segment          |         Period 1          |          Period 2            |          % Growth?

A                          |          110                   |           120

B                           |          100                  |            100

C                          |          120                   |            130

D                          |           90                    |              120

E                          |            100                 |             110

 

Thank You

Re: Calculating Growth in a Matrix (adding a column)

Hi,

Please follow the steps below:

Step 1: Click on Enter data under Modeling tab and enter the following data:

 

create table.png

 

 

Step 2:

Create the following measure:

Growth =
VAR period1 =
CALCULATE(
SUM('Table'[Period Value]),
FILTER(
'Table',
'Table'[Period] = "Period 1"
)
)

VAR period2 =
CALCULATE(
SUM('Table'[Period Value]),
FILTER(
'Table',
'Table'[Period] = "Period 2"
)
)

VAR division =
CALCULATE(
DIVIDE(
period2 - period1,
period2,
0
)
)

RETURN
IF(
SELECTEDVALUE(Category[Category]) = "Period 1",
SUMX(FILTER('Table', 'Table'[Period] = "Period 1"), 'Table'[Period Value]),
IF(
SELECTEDVALUE(Category[Category]) = "Period 2",
SUMX(FILTER('Table', 'Table'[Period] = "Period 2"), 'Table'[Period Value]),
IF(
SELECTEDVALUE(Category[Category]) = "Growth",
FORMAT(division, "Percent")
)
)
)
 
Step 3:
In matrix visual, drag Category column from Category table under Columns.

You can sort the Category column by creating index column and sort Category column based on index column.
