Organisation unit group

Dear all,
In Sri Lanka, I have created organisation units as schools. Schools are classified to some types based on the total students available in the year. Example in some values are aggregated from the schools which are grouped to 4 school types : <200 students, 201 to 1000 students, 1001 to 2000 students, 2001 to 3000 students and >3000 students.

while other values are aggregated from 2 schools type <200 students and >=200 students.

Each type of school will get different way of health service. So it is needed to classify these school and generate report for each type.

*I grouped these schools as organisation unit groups as above school types. *

*However, there is a problem, the number of students in each school are changed in every year. In this case, the school will be assigned to another group according to its number of students data elements collected yearly. *

Is it possible to group the organisation units according to the data element value?

I wonder if anyone has any experience from this. and have solution to consult me.

Thank you**Thủy

Hi Thuy

It is an interesting requirement ( transient orgunit group assignment
based on a data element), but it would seem to be much more easily
accomplished just with the use of a simple indicator.

Instead of using the orgunit group assignment to determine the type of
report to be generated, you could use the indicator value to make this
determination instead.

Regards,
Jason

I think this is an interesting use case.
Perhaps in the future we could create functionality for "Dynamic Orgnit Groups" and maybe a utility to 'rearrange' the groupings based on indicator values?

It depends on how you plan to use these groupings and how prominent they will be in your reports/analysis - so you may want these ranges to be (1) based on your 'sample population' of values calculated at run-time or (2) defined according to common/popular ranges (<200, >=200) as you've already suggested.

Method (1) is to generate ranges using Standard-Deviations (-3,-2,-1,1,2,3) together with the rounding function to create ranges/groups 'on the fly'. This allows your data to define its own boundaries but may limit your options with further analysis unless you implement this method in other parts of the system...
