Dear Chala

For aggregate or individual?

Aggregate use indicators while in individual use program rule

Hi,

It depends on what domain is the data you are collecting.

If it’s tracker domain you can indeed create calculated data elements which are populated by calculating from other variables (data elements, attributes, or other barricades like number of days) - and these calculated data elements will be persisted on the database.

On the other hand, if we’re taking about aggregate data elements, what you can do is create indicators which are calculated from either aggregate data elements, program indicators, event days items, org unit group counts, constants or combinations of these. But unlike the ones in the tracker domain, these indicators are not persisted on the database and you’ll get the results calculated on the fly whenever you’re analyzing data using them.

You can create calculated days elements in program rules and making the action assign value and indicators using the indicators app in maintenance.

Hello,

If you are using the Tracker (individual data domain) use program indicators, but if you are on aggregate domain i.e. collecting aggregate data like mean, average etc, use Indicators.
