## DAX: How to calculate percentage (slicer choice) from fixed total value

I have a report where the user can use slicers to filter out a certain amount of people based on those values. Three different values are shown:

• Total amount of people (fixed number)
• Amount of people after slicer choice
• Percentage of people after slicer choice

How can I calculate the percentage using DAX?

Example:

Total = 400

After slicer choice = 44

Percentage = 11%

This is great!

We decided to bring in the measure directly from the cube - just a better alternative for us.
