Attributeoptioncombo use in indicators

Dear DHIS2 community,

We have data that is disaggregated by both categoryoptioncombo’s and attributeoptioncombo’s. When setting up indicators it is clear how to reference a dataelement’s specific categoryoptioncombo (dataelement_uid"."categoryoptioncombo_uid). Is it possible to likewise reference a specific attributeoptioncombo within an indicator?

Thank you

Ant Snyman

Hi Ant,

The attribute category combo will appear as an additional dimension in the reporting apps. By default, your indicator will be aggregated for all attribute categories, but you can disaggregate the data selecting the additional data dimension in reports.

See a screenshot below. I have assigned an attribute cat combo to determine the time of survey submission (baseline, program end, etc.). In pivot tables I can disaggregate my data (indicators as well) by this dimension. I hope this helps.

Thank you Georgi for your response.

So I guess the answer is that you cannot reference a specific dataelement+attributeoptioncombo when setting up an indicator in order to calculate a very specific rate. Disaggregation in the report will in this case not work as far as I can see because the denominator is not disaggregated by that attributeoptioncombo. I just wanted to make very sure that was not missing a feature in DHIS2 which I was not aware of.

But thanks again for taking the time to respond.

Much appreciated

Ant

Hi Ant,

In 2.27 support for adding specific attribute option combos when calculating indicators. There is no user interface for doing so but if you try to use the UiD references this works in 2.27 and forward.

The indicator can then be calculated using these specifications:

See documentation:

Hi Trøyel,

I think I owe you a bottle of good South African wine. Thanks, that was useful information.
