Identify value by min/max value of another column



I'm trying to identify a value of one column based on a minimum average value of another column. In the example provided below, I'd like to create measures that narrow down to a scalar of the "Specific Skill/Industry" value associated with the minimum and maximum average "Experience Level" score column. So in this example, I'd like to identify Skill A as the minimum average experience level score with 1.25 and Skill C as the maximum average experience level score with 5.0.


I've already created the minimum/maximum experience level scores themselves using the following measure (minimum score measure provided as example):


Min_Score =
VAR Avg_Table =
Survey_Table[Specific Skill/Industry],
"Avg_Score", AVERAGE ( Survey_Table[Experience Level] )
VAR Min_Val =
MINX ( Avg_Table, [Avg_Score] )

@jdriscoll , Try a measure like


calculate(Min( Survey_Table[Experience Level] ), allexcept(Survey_Table,Survey_Table[Specific Skill/Industry]))



calculate(Min( Survey_Table[Experience Level] ), filter(allselected(Survey_Table),Survey_Table[Specific Skill/Industry] =max(Survey_Table[Specific Skill/Industry])))

Hi, I tried both those measures and they return numbers. I'm looking for the value in the specific skill/industry column corresponding with minimum or maximum average experience levels.

Hi, @jdriscoll 


Can you share some sample data(table format instead of pictures) and your desired result? Your measure looks fine, What's the difference between it and the result you want?
