Calculating percentages within a group

I'd like to calculate count percentages within a group, not group percentages of an entire field/data set


Here's the measure:

% of Students Growth > 1 = DIVIDE(CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(SAYOT_Student_diff), SAYOT_Student_diff[Diff] > 1), COUNTROWS(SAYOT_Student_diff))


In English, the logic is to calculate the percentage of rows where Diff was greater than 1 per category, which is another field in the table

The measure works fine when no filters are applied, but produces weird results whenever I apply a filter. I've looked into ALLSELECTED but wasn't getting anything out of that

Re: Calculating percentages within a group

Hi @kimchizal


Can you show your data model or share the pbix?

Is this the only table in your model? What slicers are you using when the measure doesn't work as expected?

Re: Calculating percentages within a group

Hi @kimchizal,

Based on my test, you could refer to below formula:

Sample data:


Create below measure:

% of Students Growth > 1 = DIVIDE(CALCULATE(COUNT(SAYOT_Student_diff[Diff]),FILTER(ALL(SAYOT_Student_diff), SAYOT_Student_diff[Diff] > 1)), COUNTROWS(ALL(SAYOT_Student_diff)))



You could also download the pbix file to have a view.
