Hi @blockobito ,

 

If you want to calculate the percentage of males and females in the total, you can try this code.

Percentage = 
VAR _Total =
    CALCULATE ( COUNT ( 'Table'[User] ), ALL ( 'Table' ) )
VAR _Each_Gender =
    CALCULATE ( COUNT ( 'Table'[User] ) )
RETURN
    DIVIDE ( _Each_Gender, _Total )

My Sample:

Measure = CountRows(table)

Then place a visual with the gender and the Measure as the column. Can be added twice and use second as % of total.

If you need to split it up into separate records...

Measure Male = 

CALCULATE(COUNTROWS(Table1),Table1[gender] = "Male")
(you will need to ensure that the data is all uniform ie all CAPS or all lower etc I think)
