## Weighted Average Calculation

Hi there,

I have reached a roadblock and seeking for help in calculating weighted average for the following data.

The Column Risk2 determines which products are in a risk category and is calculated as follows

``Risk2 = if(([Consumption]) > [Forecast],0,1)``

I suspect that there is a better way to calculate the ratio of "Risk" items for each subcategory (A-C). I tried using ALLSELECTED[GROUP] but some reason it didn't work.  Here is the calculated measure I used

``% = DIVIDE(sum([Risk2]), calculate(COUNT([Risk2]),ALLSELECTED([ITEMCODE])))``

And then the final result that I am trying to achieve is the weighted average
Group A has 50% weght,

Group B - 30%

Group C - 20%
and the remaining groups (D-F) are 0%.

I need to get the sum of % of each group multiplied by weight - 60*0.5 + 93.75*0.3 + 80*0.2 = 74.25

The current measure is a simple IF statement but that doesn't seem to work

``````Weighted % =
VAR FR =
DIVIDE(sum([Risk2]), calculate(COUNT([Risk2]),ALLSELECTED([ITEMCODE])))
RETURN
IF(MAX([GROUP] )= "A",FR * 0.5,
IF (MAX([GROUP]) = "B", FR * 0.3,
IF( MAX([GROUP]) = "C", FR * 0.2,
IF( MAX([GROUP]) = "D", FR * 0,
IF( MAX([GROUP]) = "E", FR * 0,
IF( MAX([GROUP]) = "F", FR * 0,FR * 0
))))))``````

Thank you

You need to provide a Row Context for this to work when there is more than one Group selected.

Try using:

``````Weighted % =
VAR FR =
DIVIDE(sum([Risk2]), calculate(COUNT([Risk2]),ALLSELECTED([ITEMCODE])))
RETURN
SUMX(VALUES([GROUP]),
SWITCH([Group]
, "A",FR * 0.5
, "B", FR * 0.3
, "C", FR * 0.2
, "D", FR * 0
, "E", FR * 0
,"F", FR * 0
,FR * 0
)
)``````

Also, you can probably use the AVERAGE function instead of DIVIDE, SUM and COUNT.

Update - as per AllisonKennedy's replaced DIVIDE SUM COUNT with AVERAGE and created a separate measure for it.

% = AVG[Risk2]

Then I didn't need to use VAR in my final measure

Weighted % =
SUMX(VALUES([GROUP]),
SWITCH([Group]
, "A",AVG * 0.5
, "B", AVG * 0.3
, "C", AVG * 0.2
,AVG* 0
))

The code makes more sense and works as intended

Big thanks to AllisonKennedy

Hi @AllisonKennedy
Thank you for this
It almost worked - but for some reason the sum equals to non weighted ratio
