"future" period as denominator data

Hi,

we have some population-based indicators, and have population-data for 2014 in the database. However, when we look at indicators for any month in 2014, it appears that the denominator is picked from the last finished period, i.e. 2013. When we look at 2014 as total by selecting "this year" in pivot table, the indicator is calculated correctly using 2014 population data.

A point of allowing future data to be entered should be to use this year's projected population data in indicators. Is there some setting somewhere I have missed to allow this?

An example indicator is measles coverage:
Numerator: measles vaccination given (monthly)
Denominator: population <1 (yearly)
Percentage, annualized

Regards,
Johan

Any comments on this? Is it a bug, or have I done something wrong in the definitions?

This is version: 2.16
Build date: 2014-09-07 13:11

To clarify: We have a population-based indicator that shows no value for any month in 2014 (we don't have population data for 2013). We have projected population data for 2014, but these are apparently only used when we tick off "This year" in pivot or visualizer.

Hi Johan,

make sure you set the aggregation operator of the population data element to average.
