Sum of percentages

Hello all,

I have the table below, and I am trying to sum the Attrition Rate percentages (as in 0.9+1.9 = 2.8, rather than having a recalculated value based on Average Leavers and Average Headcounts).

My end goal is a rolling 3-month attrition (and being able to filter by the filters shown). I have gotten as close as possible with the formula you will see in my workbook, but the calculation is not 100% correct. If Region is set to UK, it should be 4.4% instead of 4%. If Region is set to UK and Division is set to B, it should be 4.2% instead of 3.8%.

My test pbix: Attrition Tests

Any ideas would be very much appreciated 🙂

In an attempt to keep thing simple, I created this measure:

``TestM = SUMX(VALUES(Dates[Date]), [Attrition Rate])``

and then using the filter pane, limited it to the last 3 months using a relative date filter. I think it gets the correct answers.

I suggest testing at your side and you could maybe incorporate the 'last 3 months' part in the measure if you don't want to use the filter pane.

Let me know how you get on.

Hello HotChilli,

Thank you so so much for this! It works amazingly.

I added the month bit as part of the measure, as I need the 6 month, and 12 month rolling attrition as well.
