Program indicator groups

Hi devs,
are there plans for program indicator groups? I didn’t find any blueprints. It doesn’t take to many program indicators before it gets confusing when you just have one huge list. Secondly, in cases where you have data disaggregated by e.g. age and sex, it is currently quite limited what you can do in the pivot table with program indicators - having program indicator groups that could be used as data dimensions (like data element groups) could help resolve that.

Hi Olav,

yes having program indicator groups as a means of organizing a large list of program indicators sounds like a good and natural development. Please write a blueprint.

Having it as a data dimension will be tricky since program indicators are calculated/derived values.

What we have been thinking of though is to support data element groups + group sets for tracker data elements, which could be used as data dimensions. That could perhaps help with this problem as well.

regards,

Lars

Hi,

blueprint for groups: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/dhis2/+spec/program-indicator-groups

As for the tracker data element groups, I didn’t quite understand how that would work?

What I was thinking of was for cases where you have for example discharge diagnosis or deaths, and would like to have a table with diagnosis (rows) and age (columns). Or, I imagine, any circumstance where you have program indicator that could be disaggregated by age or sex, you might want to do something similar (vaccine doses for each antigen vs age; ANC visits vs age of mother etc). Would what you describe work on those cases? The simple examples I mention you could get in event reports, but not the ones requiring a bit more logic.

Okay thanks. Put this up for 2.25.

Right. Disaggregation of program indicators becomes a bit complex. Let's
discuss this later.
