I want to find out how many distinct individuals have clocked in per day in VA.
Imagine a person clocks in every time they enter a building. I don't care if they enter building multiply times a day, but want to know how many unique individuals clock in per day.
Data I have is f.i. like this:
If I use just a 'Count' on the "Name" then I get 23, which is not what I'm after, since this counts all duplicates during a day.
If I use 'Distinct' then I get 6, which is not what I'm after either, since it won't separate days.
I want a total Distinct count per day, so the number I'm after from this example is 18.
So I want a dashboard to saying that number 18, fairly simple to achieve in Excel but I can't figure out how to do this in VA.
Basically I need a 'Distinct' count for all values in "Monday" then a 'Distinct' count for all values in "Tuesday" and so on. Then I need to summarize the days to get to the total for the week.
Is this possible to achieve directly in VA? Or would I need to prep data and create a separate column for each day?
In Visual Analytics 8.3+, you can use the AggregateTable operator and average the unique values of (name, day), then sum them up.
AggregateTable(_Sum_, Table(_Avg_, Fixed('name'n, 'day'n),'Frequency'n))
You can add this to a crosstab and enable the Totals option. All of the totals should add up for you.
@Renato_sas wrote up a really great overview of the AggregateTable operator in case you'd like to learn more about it. It can do a lot of really neat things. You can check that out here: SAS Visual Analytics Advanced Calculations part 2 of 4
