## Average per row, reseting on each month

Hello!

First Post.

I have data of my country's position on a ranking list.

I need to determine the average of that position for each month separately.

Currently im using:

Promedio = CALCULATE(
AVERAGE(PowerBI[Posición]);
FILTER(PowerBI;
PowerBI[Fecha].[Month]<=EARLIER(PowerBI[Fecha].[Month])
&& PowerBI[Fecha].[Day]<=EARLIER(PowerBI[Fecha].[Day]))
)

But the averages are wrongly calculated.
I also noticed that on the first day of the month if position is 50 the average shows 55.5 which means its carrying values from the previous months.

Hi @Anonymous ,

We can use the following steps to meet your requirement.

1. Create two calculate columns, one is year, another is month.

``````Month = MONTH('Table'[Date])

year = YEAR('Table'[Date])``````

2. Then we can create a measure,

``````Each month AVG =
var current_month = MAX('Table'[Month])
var Total_value = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[value]))
var Month_day = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT('Table'[Date]),FILTER('Table','Table'[Month] = current_month))
return
DIVIDE(Total_value,Month_day)``````

The result like this,

3. Or we can create a calculate column,

``````AVG column =
var total_month = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT('Table'[Date]),FILTER(ALLSELECTED('Table'),'Table'[Month]=EARLIER('Table'[Month])&& 'Table'[year]=EARLIER('Table'[year])))
var current_month = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[value]),FILTER(ALLSELECTED('Table'),'Table'[Month]=EARLIER('Table'[Month]) && 'Table'[year]=EARLIER('Table'[year])))
return
DIVIDE(current_month,total_month)``````

The result like this,

If it doesn’t meet your requirement, could you please show the exact expected result based on the table that you have shared?
