Question on acceptance rate calc

Options
Member

Hello, I am trying to calculate total accpetance rate of the students.

I have 2 calculated fields

Accepted Students: case when (acceptance_flag = 1) then count(students)

Total Students: count(students)

I am having a table format and calculation for acceptance rate:

(case when (acceptance_flag = 1) then count(students) )/count(students) * 100

With this, I always get 100% for the every record that is true. Please help with the calculation that needs to be used.

Try this:

COUNT(CASE WHEN `acceptance_flag` = 1 THEN `students` END) / COUNT(`students`) * 100

COUNT(CASE WHEN `acceptance_flag` = 1 THEN `students` END) / COUNT(`students`) * 100

Thank you @ColemenWilson . As suggested by you, I tried this -

COUNT(CASE WHEN Acceptance_flag= 1 THEN Students END))/COUNT(Students))* 100 It still gives me as 100% for every student which is true. Else 0%. Not sure if I am missing anything.

It is not taking the total into consideration in denominator. I have done this in Tableau using LOD, just not sure on how to get this to work in Domo. Thanks again for looking into this.

What is the students field? Is that the number of students, or is it some other value? Is it numeric or text?

What does the data for `Students` look like? Is it a student id? Or is it a number that represents the number of students? Also I noticed missing (or extra) parentheses in your beastmode in your most recent comment - so double check that.

@GrantSmith @ColemenWilson Thank you for your response

The original datatype is text. But then in beast mode I am trying to do count() which becomes numeric.

Yes, the missing parentheses was a typo above. In Domo, I did not have any compilation errors. Thank you!

Sorry for the confusion. I will use a KPI box with the above calculation. It works great. Thank you both.
