## YTD Average Employee Headcount on a Given Date

I am attempting to calculate Employee Turnover, for which I need to first calculate the average number of employees per day (or month).  For instance and if we had 1,000 employees in January and 1,200 in February, then the February YTD average would be 1,100 per month.

I only have hire dates and termination dates at my disposal.  I found the below DAX (modified from this blog) to be useful in calculating the number of employees on any given day, but I am now struggling to measure this as a daily or monthly average.

Any help appreciated.

Employee Count =
SUMX (
GENERATE (
CALCULATETABLE (
SUMMARIZE (
EmployeeRosterHires,
EmployeeRosterHires[Hire Date],
EmployeeRosterHires[Termination Date],
"Rows", COUNTROWS ( EmployeeRosterHires )
),
ALL ( 'Date' )
),
INTERSECT (
DATESBETWEEN ( 'Date'[Date], EmployeeRosterHires[Hire Date], EmployeeRosterHires[Termination Date] ),
LASTDATE ( 'Date'[Date] )
)
),
[Rows]
)

In this scenario, as you already have Employee Count measure to get available employees on any date. To analysis on month level, you only need to get the "Employee Count" on end of each month. I suggest you add a "Tag" column in your Calendar table for filtering "End Of Month".

`IsEOMONTH = IF('Calendar'[Date]=EOMONTH('Calendar'[Date],0),1,0)`

Then you can create a measure for Monthly Average:

```AVG Monthly =
CALCULATE (
AVERAGEX ( 'Calendar', [Employee Count] ),
FILTER ( ALLSELECTED ( 'Calendar' ), 'Calendar'[IsEOMONTH] = 1 )
)
```

For Daily Average, you just need to calculate average on existing Employee Count measure:

`AVG Daily = AVERAGEX(ALLSELECTED('Calendar'),[Employee Count])`
