Division in Beastmode


I am trying to find the percentage of data in 1 column.

I have a field called Anonymous that is either a Yes or No. Would like to show the percentage of when the anonymous is yes on a line graph

I know the equation is Yes/Yes and No but can't get it to work in beast mode

Tried this

count('anonymous' = 'yes')/count('anonymous' = 'yes' or 'no')

I know I'm way off. Thank you, Jill Bowers

    Hi @user082291

    You can use SUM and a CASE statement to conditionally calculate your percentage.

    SUM(CASE WHEN `anonymous`='yes' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) / SUM(CASE WHEN `anonymous` IN ('yes', 'no') THEN 1 ELSE 0 END)

    The denominator case statement isn't required if your values are only 'yes' or 'no'. You could change that to just be SUM(1)
