## Count values in one column that have consistent values in another column

I have a load of requirements that are prioritised by a number of people. I would like to know how many of the requirements are rated consistently, and how many are rated inconsistently.

For example, for the below table, this would be:

Rated consistently = 2

Rated inconsistently = 1

 Rater Requirement Rating Luke 1. I need Power BI to be awesome High Tim 1. I need Power BI to be awesome Medium Paul 1. I need Power BI to be awesome High Luke 2. I need a mouse Low Tim 2. I need a mouse Low Paul 2. I need a mouse Low Luke 3. I need skills Medium Tim 3. I need skills Medium Paul 3. I need skills Medium

Hi @freemainia ,

Create a calculated colum to pikcup any of the rating per requirement and then compare it against the rating in a row.  If the rating vs the random rating is the same, return 1 else 0.

``````Rating Check =
VAR rating =
CALCULATE (
MAX ( 'Table'[Rating] ),
FILTER ( 'Table', 'Table'[Requirement] = EARLIER ( 'Table'[Requirement] ) )
)
RETURN
IF ( 'Table'[Rating] = rating, 0, 1 )
``````

Create another calculated column to get the sum of Rating Check (calculcated column previous created) per requirement. If the sum if zero then constentent = yes else no

``````Consistent? =
IF (
CALCULATE (
SUM ( 'Table'[Rating Check] ),
ALLEXCEPT ( 'Table', 'Table'[Requirement] )
) > 0,
"No",
"Yes"
)
``````

Then in a visual, get the distinct count of requirement split between  whether it is consistent or not.

Thanks @danextian for your quick response.

A few complicating things:

- My Rating column doesn't actually have numbers in it (just the "I need X...")

- Is it possible for the solution to created through measures? As, the count of consistent and inconsistent would ideally need to change based off the number of Raters selected.

Hello,

Can you please post  a sample data that actually represents your current use case? Sometimes an overly simplied sample data results to an overly simplified solution 😊
