Sum indicators

Hi all,

Aggregate indicators; DHIS 2 version 2.34.4

I am wondering if it is possible to build an indicator based on other indicators. For example, INDICATOR D = INDICATOR A + INDICATOR B + INDICATOR C or combine indicators with data elements or TO create new indicators. For example, INDICATOR B = INDICATOR A + DATA ELEMENT A.


Hello Hernandez,

The answer to your question is no, you cannot directly build an indicator by combining other indicators. But there’s a way around this, you can simply combine the formulas that make up the indicators you want to combine to build your Indicator. For example, if INDICATOR A = x + y and INDICATOR B = xy, then your INDICATOR D = (x+y) + (xy).

I hope our response is able to solve the issue you were facing.
