DAX: YTD and PYTD questions

I have a dashboard with a table view that has categories of crime along the left side and columns of totals for YTD figures and Previous YTD figures. On the current year or monthly totals the figures are correct. If it is the first few days in January I get correct numbers for the current month, but on all previous time calculations I get the totals for the entire month and the formulas do not respect the partial days in the current month. For instance,.... if I run the report for the first 5 days in January I would like the previous calculations for the year prior to respect only those first 5 days in January as well. Also I cannot share the model for obvious reasons. Any help would be appreciated. 

 

My YTD DAX:

YTD = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(lwmain[lwmainid]),DATESYTD(MasterDate[Date])) 

 

My PYTD DAX:

LYTD = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(lwmain[lwmainid]), DATEADD(DATESYTD(MasterDate[Date]),-1,YEAR)) 

 

My MTD DAX:

MTD = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(lwmain[lwmainid]),DATESMTD(MasterDate[Date]))

 

My PMTD DAX:

LYMTD = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(lwmain[lwmainid]),DATEADD(DATESMTD(MasterDate[Date]), -1,YEAR))

Use of DATESBETWEEN and EDATE functions should resolve this, please check this.

LYMTD = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(lwmain[lwmainid]),DATESBETWEEN(MasterDate[Date], EDATE(STARTOFMONTH(MasterDate[Date]),-12),
EDATE(TODAY(),-12)
))
