find average number of events attended per Client ID

Hello, 

 

I have a dataset where I have 20,400 Client Ids who attend different events (there are 88 events in total). Each event falls under one of 4 category types: Housing, Employment, Finance, and Creative. I am trying to create a new column that shows the average number of events attended by each client in the 3 different streams (a,b,c). Here is what my dataset looks like:

 

client ideventtypeClient stream
123456housing helphousinga
123456employment helpemploymenta
1378910resume writingemploymentc
138801job searchemploymentb

134566employment helpemploymentc
134672resume writingemploymentb
134672job searchemploymentb
134672loan servicefinance b

 

if someone could please let me know how i can create the new column to calculate average events atteded by each clients in the 3 different streams, that would be great. Thank you

 

EDIT: I tried the dax below but I don't think it worked: 

Count of event average per STREAM =
CALCULATE (
AVERAGEX (
VALUES ( 'mytable'[Client id] ),
CALCULATE (
VAR eventitems =
SUMMARIZE ( 'mytable','mytable'[event] )
RETURN
SUMX ( eventitems, 1 ))))
 
here is the result I am getting
stream||average events
a1.97
b2.02
c2.05

Create a column in Stream table

Distinctevents = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(mytable[events]),FILTER('mytable','mytable'[client IDs]='Stream'[client IDs]))

Then drag it to table visual and Set it to the average via the drop down menu.

Hi OPS-MLTSD,

 

First Create a measure

AVG =

DIVIDE(

    COUNTROWS(FILTER(ALL('table'),'table'[Client stream]=MAX('table'[Client stream]))),

    CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT('table'[client id]),FILTER(ALL('table'),'table'[Client stream]=MAX('table'[Client stream])))

)

 

Then Place Client stream,event field and AVG measure.in the table in order.

i tried the method you posted but the numbers are showing up weird. 

OPSMLTSD_0-1631024510784.png

 

a note: the column "Client Stream" is from another table called "Stream" I have created a relationship between the Stream table and "mytable" using Client ID; the relationship is one to many. There are distinct client IDs in the Stream table and many client IDs in mytable since one client can attend multiple events. 

 

Is there a way to create a column or a measure that counts the average number of distinct events attended for all clients?

@v-chenwuz-msft  Hello, I tried the dax you created above and I tried to add it to mytable and it was not recognized there. 

This is the part that gave me an error: FILTER('mytable','mytable'[client IDs]='Stream'[client IDs]))

hi @OPS-MLTSD ,

You cannot add to a mytable. If you don't want to add to the stream table, you can make a copy of the stream table.

 

Here is my pbix file that you can refer to.

I am not able to open your file since I am using an older version of Power BI (oct 2020) due to company policy, I cannot upgrade to the newer version, would it be possible for you to upload the screenshots? Thank you

Here are screenshots. mytable and stream table have been mentioned before.

Is this what you mean?  Here is a measure that shows one way to do this.  Replace "Clients" with your actual table name.

 

mahoneypat_0-1630951251275.png

 

Client Stream Count =
CALCULATE (
    COUNTROWS ( Clients ),
    ALLEXCEPT ( Clients, Clients[client id], Clients[Client stream] )
)

thanks Pat, I am looking for the average number of events attended per client in each stream. Is there a way to create a measure for the average number of events attended by clients in the 3 streams?

hello, 

 could you explain what you mean by expected result? The expected result is the new column that I am trying to create that should contain average number of events attended per client in each stream. It could either be a measure or a new column, whichever is easier to create. Although I think a column would be better so that it can contains row level data
