Program indicator to count the no. of events where a data value consists of say 'a'.

Hi

Is it possible to create Program Indicators that can count the no. of events where the data value (Data element of type ‘Text’) consists of say ‘a’.

The form consists of a field that captures the Laboratory ID and I want to count the number of IDs that contain the letter ‘a’ in them.

How do I get this?

Thank you

Hello Dipali,

You can create and formulate an indicator, where you would be able to count/calculate number of inputs like a formula. Perhaps, the count of identifying a special letter or any special search with certain criteria in input value of a data-element available in indicator is not valid at this point of time in DHIS2.

In your case as you have described, where you would be able to count “Person possess laboratory ID” with input type with option set “Yes/No” can be countable in present scenario but “Person possess laboratory ID where laboratory ID contains alphabet ‘a’” which should be filtered from inputs is not fissile. Perhaps this case can be resolved with creating a data-element “Person possess laboratory ID where ID contains alphabet ‘a’” with input type option set “Yes/No” can be countable and measurable with specific time frame. And with the help of this data-element you would be able to create programme indicator that should be able to do this measurement.
