Dynamic Histogram with Measures

Hi everybody ! How are you?

 

I need to do a dynamic histogram where the value is a measure. It is a possible?

 

Basically, I need a histogram that is based on a measurement and that changes according to the selected date slicer changes.

The example would be as follows:
I have a measurement ranging from -100% to 100% and I need to group stores with values from -100% to 100% in 10% intervals.

 

Thanks !

Regards!

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

First of all, We can create a calculated table as the Axis:

 

X-Axis =
ADDCOLUMNS (
    ADDCOLUMNS ( GENERATESERIES ( -1, 0.9, 0.1 ), "Value2", [Value] + 0.1 ),
    "RangeName", FORMAT ( [Value], "Percent" ) & "  ~  "
        & FORMAT ( [Value2], "Percent" )
)

Then we can create a measure to count the value dynamicly

 

Count =
COUNTROWS (
    FILTER (
        'Table',
        [Measure] >= MIN ( 'X-Axis'[Value] )
            && [Measure] <= MAX ( 'X-Axis'[Value2] )
    )
)

Hi guys,

great and clear example. I have an additional question: I have build a distribution measure as suggested, however it seems to be ignoring any date filters I am applying. Any thoughts how I can make it reactive to changes in the date filter? Good to know the measure draws it's data from a different table than the one the COUNTROWS is applied to.

to avoid a value that lies on the edge of a category being counted in both the the lower and higher categories, I recommend changing the count measure from

 

Count =
COUNTROWS (
    FILTER (
        'Table',
        [Measure] >= MIN ( 'X-Axis'[Value] )
            && [Measure] <= MAX ( 'X-Axis'[Value2] )
    )
)

 

to

 

Count =
COUNTROWS(
    FILTER(
        'Table',
        [Measure]
            MIN( 'X-Axis'[Value] )
            && [Measure]
                <= MAX( 'X-Axis'[Value2] )
    )
)
