Calculating percentage

Hi

 

I have a problem finding out how to get these percentages to work properly. I have one column with numbers and blanks. What I want to do with it is to calculate how many of the filled values are greater than 0. The easiest way would be to switch everything greater than 0 into "Yes" and everything that is labelled 0 into "No", leaving out all the blanks, so I can put it in a bar chart, counting the percentage of yes and no.

 

The data looks like this.

 

How_many_0-5
0

Re: Calculating percentage

Hi,

 

You could create a calculated column which does exactly what you said:

 

Converted = IF( ISBLANK( Table[How_many_0-5] ), BLANK(), IF( Table[How_many_0-5] = 0, "No", "Yes"))

Then you can create a measure:


Count = COUNTA( Table[Converted] )

 

Or as a percentage:

 

Perc = COUNTA( Table[Converted] ) / Calculate( COUNTA(Table[Converted]), ALL(Table[Converted]) )

 

and make a bar chart of the converted column with values coming from one of the measures.

 

You may need to filter out the blank column from the visual if you don't want to see it on the bar chart. Unsure off the top of my head.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Will
