calculate the average of a measure

Good Morning

 

I need to calculate the average of a measure that can then be used in a line chart.

My table of values is as follows:

 

YearMonthTotal
2022January1256
2022February848
2022March1021
2022April727
2022May954
2022June1055
2022July1134
2022August1708
2022September1800
2022October748
2022November781
2022December429
2023January1203
2023February852
2023March966
2023April580
2023May761
2023June318

 

I want to get the average of the total which should be 952. Total is a measure that is calculated using distinct count of person number.

 

Thank you

The issue i am having is that the total is a count of person ref number, an example of which is 12234, so when i do average of person ref number it is not giving me the 952 i am expecting it is giving me over 3000.

Thank you i have already tried that and it doesnt let me select the measure Total

Hello @maurcollins ,

 

oh this total is a measure in a visual, then you need to reference the main column that is in your dataset.

Hello @maurcollins,

 

You could use this measure
Average Total = AVERAGE(TableName[Total])
