## Calculate "Running sick days per employee (long time absences)"

Hi all

I'm currently facing the challenge to create a measure for all our employees which are categorized as "long time absences". The definition for a "long time absence" is, that an employee is "sick" for at least 30 working days running. If he is 30 and more days sick in a row, the period (each date in this period) is automatically defined and flagged as "long time absence":

 Date Employee Sick Running sick days per employee Long time absence 02/02/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 03/02/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 06/02/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 07/02/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 08/02/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 09/02/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 10/02/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 13/02/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 14/02/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 15/02/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 16/02/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 20/02/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 21/02/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 22/02/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 23/02/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 24/02/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 27/02/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 28/02/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 01/03/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 02/03/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 03/03/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 06/03/2023 Employee A 1 1 0 07/03/2023 Employee A 1 2 0 08/03/2023 Employee A 1 3 0 09/03/2023 Employee A 1 4 0 10/03/2023 Employee A 1 5 0 13/03/2023 Employee A 1 6 0 14/03/2023 Employee A 1 7 0 15/03/2023 Employee A 1 8 0 16/03/2023 Employee A 1 9 0 17/03/2023 Employee A 1 10 0 20/03/2023 Employee A 1 11 0 21/03/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 22/03/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 23/03/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 27/03/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 28/03/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 29/03/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 03/04/2023 Employee A 1 1 0 04/04/2023 Employee A 1 2 0 05/04/2023 Employee A 1 3 0 06/04/2023 Employee A 1 4 0 11/04/2023 Employee A 1 5 0 12/04/2023 Employee A 1 6 0 13/04/2023 Employee A 1 7 0 14/04/2023 Employee A 1 8 0 17/04/2023 Employee A 1 9 0 18/04/2023 Employee A 1 10 0 19/04/2023 Employee A 1 11 0 20/04/2023 Employee A 1 12 0 21/04/2023 Employee A 1 13 0 24/04/2023 Employee A 1 14 0 25/04/2023 Employee A 1 15 0 26/04/2023 Employee A 1 16 0 27/04/2023 Employee A 1 17 0 28/04/2023 Employee A 1 18 0 01/05/2023 Employee A 0 0 0 02/05/2023 Employee A 1 1 1 03/05/2023 Employee A 1 2 1 04/05/2023 Employee A 1 3 1 05/05/2023 Employee A 1 4 1 08/05/2023 Employee A 1 5 1 09/05/2023 Employee A 1 6 1 10/05/2023 Employee A 1 7 1 11/05/2023 Employee A 1 8 1 12/05/2023 Employee A 1 9 1 15/05/2023 Employee A 1 10 1 16/05/2023 Employee A 1 11 1 17/05/2023 Employee A 1 12 1 19/05/2023 Employee A 1 13 1 22/05/2023 Employee A 1 14 1 23/05/2023 Employee A 1 15 1 24/05/2023 Employee A 1 16 1 25/05/2023 Employee A 1 17 1 26/05/2023 Employee A 1 18 1 30/05/2023 Employee A 1 19 1 31/05/2023 Employee A 1 20 1 01/06/2023 Employee A 1 21 1 02/06/2023 Employee A 1 22 1 05/06/2023 Employee A 1 23 1 06/06/2023 Employee A 1 24 1 07/06/2023 Employee A 1 25 1 08/06/2023 Employee A 1 26 1 09/06/2023 Employee A 1 27 1 12/06/2023 Employee A 1 28 1 13/06/2023 Employee A 1 29 1 14/06/2023 Employee A 1 30 1 15/06/2023 Employee A 1 31 1 16/06/2023 Employee A 1 32 1

I'm currently struggling with the task to calulcate the "Running sick days per employee" and therefore also with the calculation of the "Long time absence" flag in DAX.
Does anyone has some help for me?

Thanks a lot @Jihwan_Kim

Really great help here. You solution worked, however it was bot very performant in the end in the report, so we opted to implement the logic already on Database level.

kind regards and thanks
