## Regional Trend minus National Trend

Hello!

I am trying to find the difference between regional and national trends for different components. For example,

 Region Allowed Dollars for Flu Trend Denominator North 5 10 South 23 473 East 46 5789 West 24 1238

I created a measure by doing Allowed Dollars for Flu divided by the trend denominator. So the trend for North would be 5/10 = 50%

I want to be able to take that trend for North (and every other region) and subtract the national trend (which would be (5+23+46+24)/(10+473+5789+1238) = ~13% so that for North you would have 50% - 13% = 37% and display it in a table like this:

 Region Difference From National Trend North 37% South -8.14% East -12.2055% West -11.1%

(the above difference values are just approximations, not exact). All of the values will change based on different slicers I have on my dashboard (ex. year) so I can't just have a static national trend that I reference.

@evpote01 add 3 measures and you are good to go:

Region Trend % = DIVIDE ( SUM ( 'Trend'[Allowed Dollars for Flu] ), SUM ( 'Trend'[Trend Denominator] ) )

National Trend % = CALCULATE ( [Region Trend %], ALLSELECTED () )

Difference From National Trend = [Region Trend %] - [National Trend %]

Diff from National Trand =
VAR regiontrend =
SUMX ( Data, Data[Allowed Dollars for Flu] / Data[Trend Denominator] )
VAR nationaltrend =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( Data[Allowed Dollars for Flu] ) / SUM ( Data[Trend Denominator] ),
REMOVEFILTERS ( Data[Region] )
)
RETURN
regiontrend - nationaltrend
