## Calculate distinct count total at a group level

Hi,

I'm trying to create a measure to get the "Other" count for each ethnicity but having trouble calculating total distinct count group by Ethnicity. There is 1:M relationship between Person(Ethnicity) and Behavior(Incident ID). 5,928 is a distinct count without ethnicity group and 6,297 is the total (sum of #Incident for each ethnicity) I'm looking for to determine Other. Ex: #Incident for Asian = 103, Other = 6297-103 = 6194.

Expected result for #Incident Other

 Ethnicity # Incident # Incident Other TotalAll-Wrong Desired Total American Indian or Alaska Native 10 6287 5928 6297 Asian 103 6194 5928 6297 Black or African American 3531 2766 5928 6297 Hispanic/Latino 1464 4833 5928 6297 Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander 9 6288 5928 6297 White 1180 5117 5928 6297

``TotalAll-Wrong = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT('Behavior'[DISCIPLINE_INCIDENT_ID]), ALL(Person[Ethnicity]))``

I was able to get 6297 as a total with these formulas but not when the ethnicity filter context was applied.

``````# Incident All 1 =
SUMX(
VALUES(Person[Ethnicity Cd]),
CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT('Behavior'[DISCIPLINE_INCIDENT_ID])))``````
``````# Incident All 2 =
VAR TotalGrpbyEthn =
SUMMARIZE(
'Person',
Person[Ethnicity],
"EthnDistinct", DISTINCTCOUNT ('Behavior'[DISCIPLINE_INCIDENT_ID] )
)
RETURN SUMX(TotalGrpbyEthn, [EthnDistinct])``````
``````# Incident All 4 =
VAR TotalGrpbyEthn =
SUMMARIZE(
'Person',
Person[Ethnicity],
"EthnDistinct", DISTINCTCOUNT ('Behavior'[DISCIPLINE_INCIDENT_ID] )
)
RETURN CALCULATE((SUMX(TotalGrpbyEthn, [EthnDistinct])), ALLEXCEPT(Person, Person[Ethnicity]))``````

I need this to be dynamic to work across multiple other slicers from School and Person tables on the report page. Could you please point me in the right direction?
