I have a set of IDs which appear a different number of times in a file. Each ID is associated to a segment.
My first question is: How can I calculate the average number of records for an ID in a given segment?
For example, in the attached file, A appears 4 times and B appears twice. Therefore the average records/ID for Seg1 is 3.
These records are also associated to a Group.
My second question is: How can I calculate the average number of records for an ID for a given segment and group?
I'd like to answer both questions using the same data set. See attached.
Thanks!
Hi Robert,
For the first question, place Segment and ID on the rows shelf. Then, create a calculated field similar to the following:
total(sum([Number of Records]))/total(countd(ID))
**Note: to use countd, an extract needs to be taken
Then, place this calculation on the view, right click and select Compute Using-->Pane (Down).
For the second question I'm not sure exactly the desired outcome, but editing how the calculation is computed may help resolve it.
