Org Unit count

Hallo everyone,

I am working on some indicators that require number of org units under a given org unit e.g. number of health facilities under a district. I am using the org unit count under the indicator numerator or denominator section, but I have noticed that the count returned is always with an extra one i.e. where I expect 22 facilities, it is giving me 23. Is this a bug or something to do with the hierarchy?

Thank you,

Harold

Dear Harold,

Sounds like it counts the root/parent organisation unit.

Hi Alex,

Yes, it seems to be doing that. Is that by design or is it a bug?

Hi Mugeni,

here is a guess: You need to use a group for your indicator which contains facilities only, not facilities and districts. I suspect you are using an org unit group which contains the districts as well.

Hi Lars,

I am not using an org unit group. The hierarchy of my instance is as follows:- MoH, Zone, District, Health Facility. Now for this particular indicator which is supposed to calculate the percentage of health facilities that have a functional water supply or a functional communication system or electricity (each of these is its own indicator), there are data elements reporting the number of health facilities with either water or communication or electricity. These data elements would serve as the numerators. For the denominator, I need to be able to retrieve the number of health facilities in that particular district. So what I am doing is actually selecting the district, but the result I am getting is always with an extra 1 added to it.

Okay, but what does your indicator denominator look like? Can you post the exact formula?

There is no such thing as a general org unit count - you can insert the count of org units within a group into the formula.

So how is “Number of health facilities in the catchment area” populated? Do people enter this data or is it populated with some script? As Lars says, DHIS2 will not calculate this somehow automatically, so it must be coming from somewhere,either by data entry or population by an external script.

For ‘Number of health facilities in the catchment area’, I was thinking of using the Organisation Unit Counts functionality found in the Indicator numerator and denominator windows. But the problem is when I sue that, the count always returns a value higher by 1, than expected.

Right, so as Lars indicates, the likely cause of this is because your district and facilities are part of the same organization unit group. Can you confirm this is not the case? This is a very common mistake, and has been brought up

Also, you should probably not calculate the percentage directly in the indicator formula, but rather use an indicator type of “Percentage” and let DHIS2 perform the calculation to percentage for you.

Jason

Okay, but what does your indicator denominator look like? Can you post the exact formula?

There is no such thing as a general org unit count - you can insert the count of org units within a group into the formula.

Hi Lars,

I am not using an org unit group. The hierarchy of my instance is as follows:- MoH, Zone, District, Health Facility. Now for this particular indicator which is supposed to calculate the percentage of health facilities that have a functional water supply or a functional communication system or electricity (each of these is its own indicator), there are data elements reporting the number of health facilities with either water or communication or electricity. These data elements would serve as the numerators. For the denominator, I need to be able to retrieve the number of health facilities in that particular district. So what I am doing is actually selecting the district, but the result I am getting is always with an extra 1 added to it.

Hi Mugeni,

here is a guess: You need to use a group for your indicator which contains facilities only, not facilities and districts. I suspect you are using an org unit group which contains the districts as well.

Lars

Hi Alex,

Yes, it seems to be doing that. Is that by design or is it a bug?

Dear Harold,

Sounds like it counts the root/parent organisation unit.

Hallo everyone,

I am working on some indicators that require number of org units under a given org unit e.g. number of health facilities under a district. I am using the org unit count under the indicator numerator or denominator section, but I have noticed that the count returned is always with an extra one i.e. where I expect 22 facilities, it is giving me 23. Is this a bug or something to do with the hierarchy?

Thank you,

Harold
