Calculating average based on a text column

Hi,

I have a following sample of the data set. I would like to be able to calculate the average based on a text column (please refer to the “Update” column).

From this data there are 6 total ‘updates’, 4 in W1 and 2 in W2, and the average should be 3 ‘updates’. How could I get this average value in Power BI?

 

Many thanks,

Hello @MartynasBI 

You can use count and distinct count combination to achieve this. 

DAX looks a below:

Average = 
Var A = COUNT('Counting Weeks Data'[Update])
Var B = DISTINCTCOUNT('Counting Weeks Data'[Week])
Return
DIVIDE(A,B,BLANK())

 

If this post helps, then please consider accepting it as the solution to help other members find it more quickly. Thank You!!

Hi @Kishore_KVN ,

 

Unfortunately it did not work. Apologies, my provided data might not have been fully representative of what I am working with. Please find the below data set example

The goal remains the same - to calculate the average updates per week.

 

Thanks

Can you please share the expected output as well!!!
