# Program indicators: how to calculate the proportion of female?

Dear all,

Sorry if it is a basic question, but we are trying to create a program indicator which is the proportion of female among the patients enrolled. How can we do this?

We tried to first calculate the number of patients who are female, but then we cannot use this indicator to calculate the proportion…

Any idea?

Lise.

Dear Lise,

You will need to create two program indicators

1. Count the number of patients enrolled

2. Count the number of patients enrolled who are Female

Then go to Aggregate Indicators and create an indicator using program Indicators with Indicator 2 as numerator and Indicator 1 and denominator.

Then this can be analyzed in Pivot tables as an aggregate indicator

Dear Prosper,

Thanks a lot. We have just seen it in maintenance, but it is very important to have your confirmation.

Thanks.
