scatter chart with growth rate

I have data in this format...   industry, year, employees


i have measure of growtrate like this...


divide (sum(Data[EMPLOYEES]) - calculate(sum(Data[EMPLOYEES]),SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR(Data[YEAR])), calculate(sum(Data[EMPLOYEES]),SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR(Data[YEAR])))


This works fine as long as use this only for line chart with growthrate by year. I can also fillter the data by industry.


I want scatter chart which shows employment and growth for give year by industry.  I have year filter so that we can view only one year at a time. Issue i have is that if i choose a year, i get employment right but no growth (because calculation needs previous year growth). If i select two years then i get growth right but employment adds up across year.


Can scatter chart by done in anyway with dynamic calculation of growth and filtered by year.

Hi @sshekar7,


Based on my test, when we check one year, the scatter chart also can display the growth. See:




I have attached the test .PBIX file for your look. If I misunderstand the requirement, please correct me.
