Row total count and grand total count is diffrent by using DistinctCount and Calculate in Matrix

I am actively looking for the solution to resolve the issue appeared several times in my Power BI report. So I have created the measure to calculate the distinct count of the users which are connected City/country-wise by using below DAX.

Total User Connected(Wireless) = CALCULATE( DISTINCTCOUNT('Posture assessment'['ENDPOINT_ID']),FILTER('Posture assessment','Posture assessment'[NAC Policy ]="Wireless"))

And my grand total and subtotal is completely wrong as compared to actual row count. Then I tried a different approach with this DAX below but no change. Total is still wrong.

Count of Unique = SUMX(Values('Posture assessment'[Region]),CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT('Posture assessment'['ENDPOINT_ID']),FILTER('Posture assessment','Posture assessment'[NAC Policy ]="Wireless")))

Table illustration is: Here, for example, India's value is different as compared to the total.Capture.GIF

@Vashukla11 , Try to rollup from city level

Count of Unique = SUMX(summarize('Posture assessment','Posture assessment'[Region],'Posture assessment'[Country],'Posture assessment'[City],"_1",CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT('Posture assessment'['ENDPOINT_ID']),FILTER('Posture assessment','Posture assessment'[NAC Policy ]="Wireless"))),[_1])

Re: Row total count and grand total count is diffrent by using DistinctCount and Calculate in Matrix

Thanks for the quick help Amit, It is working. 

Just wanted to know why we are using "_1". Is this to calculate row or some kind of indexing. 

Please explain.
