## Monthly comparison by categories

Hello everyone.

I'm new to this power bi and dax thing and I need your help.

I have a record that contains thousands of products, each with its price and category (the category is divided into three levels in another table)

In addition, I have the date on which each of the records has been made.

I need a way to calculate and compare the evolution of prices over time (by months for example), both individually and by categories.

For example, see which are the categories/prices that have risen the most in price in the last year, or the ones that have risen the least. They have risen from one month to the next...

A small example of the table can be something like this.

 Product Price Category Date AAA 5.3 A 01/01/2022 FIG 8.2 A 05/02/2022 BBB 1.1 B 01/01/2022 CCC 5.3 C 23/05/2022 CHAPTER 0.2 B 04/12/2022 DDD 2.7 A 03/03/2022 GGG 10.1 C 14/02/2022 HGT 20.3 C 23/08/2022 AAA 5.4 A 11/01/2022 CCC 6.1 C 17/09/2022 BBB 1.1 B 01/01/2022 DDD .3.1 A 08/03/2022 GGG 9.1 C 29/03/2022

I imagine that we will have to calculate the average price of the category for the month in question, which is what I do not know how to do it.

I do not know if I have explained myself well or if it is necessary to clarify something.

Thanks a lot

If you want to calculate the average price of the category for the month, you can create a Dimdate table by CALENDAR()/CALENDARAUTO() function. Then create a measure by average function.

Data model:

Measure:

``````Avg =
AVERAGE('Table'[Price])``````

Result is as below.
