    Question Average count by pivot subtotal

    Please see the attachment

    I have a pivot table that counts the number of instances of each actor for each location and subtotals by location. I would also like to average the count of instances of each actor for each location. Summarizing by average does not work.

    I think I may need a Power Pivot measure or calculated field.

    Please help!

    Re: Average count by pivot subtotal

    Hello jbfx and Welcome to Excel Forum.
    This proposal employs a helper column, converting the data to a table and Get & Transform/Data Model.
    The helper column (C) named Distinct Ct. is populated using: =IF(COUNTIFS(A$2:A2,A2,B$2:B2,B2)=1,1,0)
    Note that the helper column may be hidden and/or moved for aesthetic purposes.
    After the data in A:C is converted to a table the following Power Query advanced editor is used to produce a connection only to the table and produce a data model:

    The following measure (Average) is added to the data model: =COUNT(Table1[Actor])/SUM(Table1[Distinct Ct.])
    In the pivot table that is produced from the data model Distinct Ct. (SUM) and Average are placed in the Values area.
    Let us know if you have any questions.
