# Head Count

Hi, i need to count the number of active of employees in the company, so i need to exclude the employees who have left the company....

so i know the active employees have the type contract ("101","102","103","104","105","106","107","108"), but my problem is that every employee has records for every month and year, even if they become inactive.

I have NumberEmployee, AdmissionDate, DemissionDate, YearEmployee (every year since he has been employed, until the present year), MonthEmploye (every month since he has been employed, until the present month), TypeContract and the YearMonthEmployee.

I think my problem is that i can't select the last record (row) of the employee.... i'm counting employees as being  active when in fact they are already inactive, and vice-versa.

i'm using the following expression:

=sum({<TypeContract={"101","102","103","104","105","106","107","108"},YearEmployer={"\$(=only(Year))"}>}
aggr(
if(
max({< YearEmployer = {"\$(=only(Year))"}>}YearMOunthEmployer
and(
DemissionDate >= vMinDateCalendar
or
LEN( DemissionDate) = 0
)
,1
)
,NumEmployer)
)

do you have any idea of what might be wrong ??

I dont know if it will help, but I do something similar with this:

Count(Distinct (if([Calendar Date]>=[Hire Date] and [Calendar Date]<= if(Status='Active',[Active Date],[Inactive Date]) and [Calendar Date]<=today(),Employee)))

This method for me will show them as active until their inactive date and if they do not have an inactive date i calculate today()*2 to put a future date in.

Hi,

Its better to make a flag isActive (means field) in the loadscript by comparing with the AdmissionDate, DemissionDate.

I mean if the date is between AdmissionDate and DemissionDate then 1 else 0.

Ex:

Table:

Load

*,

if(DateField>=AdmissionDate and DateField<=DemissionDate , 1,0) as isActive

From Datasource;

Then use set analysis as

Sum({<TypeContract={"101","102","103","104","105","106","107","108"},isActive={1}>} FieldName)

Hi,

Then try this

After doing the above approach

CurrentStatus:

Load

NumEmployee,

LastValue(Active) as CurrentlyActive

Resident

TableName

Group By NumEmployee;//Previously Loaded TableName

Celambarasan, this is great !!

i created the lastvalue(active) and the lasvalue(typecontract)

and it's works, but !! there's always a but when i select the 2011 year, it doesnt count the employees who have been fired in 2012...

Because it only takes into account the last record status values...  how can i make this work with the calendar witohout having to connect this table with the calendar itself?

apreciate !! ty !

anybody can help ?

Hi,

You mean you need to count the employees fired in 2012 on selecting 2011 for active employees?

Celambarasan

• ###### Re: Head Count

what i mean is that i need to count the employees active in 2011 on selecting 2011.

What i need is to be able to count the number of active employees on a determined date. For example, if i select 2011, i need to see how many employees were active until the end of 2011. If i select 2012, get the number of employees that are still active to this date.

What the function lastvalue() does is retrieve the last known status of each employee, i.e. the last record's status. That does not help me because when i select 2011, an employee who got fired in 2012 appears as inactive.

In short, i need the lastvalue() to retrieve the last record in accordance to the select calendar year.

can understand ?

Hi,

In that case this methd itself will help know?

Table:

Load

*,

if(DateField>=AdmissionDate and DateField<=DemissionDate , 1,0) as isActive

From Datasource;

Then use set analysis as

Sum({<TypeContract={"101","102","103","104","105","106","107","108"},isActive={1},YearEmployer={"=\$(=Max(Year))"}>} FieldName)

• ###### Re: Head Count

no :| my datefield isn't static... i need to choose beetwen 2009 and 2012.... if i do that in script how he will detect when i'm changing the year ?

• ###### Re: Head Count

Hi,

For that only you are using this to get the selected year

YearEmployer={"=\$(=Max(Year))"}

Celambarasan

• ###### Re: Head Count

Bahh now i can do it... !! the expression is like that.....

=count({<AdmissionDate={"<=\$(vMaxDateCalendar)"},CheckActive={"Active"},ContractType={101,102,103,104,105,106,107,108}>} DISTINCT

if(

aggr( nodistinct max(YearMounth), EmployerNumber) = YearMounth

,

EmployerNumber

)

)

ok.... now this is working..... BUT when i make in the set analysis

YearEmployer={"=\$(=Max(Year))"} it doesn't nothing, even  i make (Year)-1   ..... nothing....

and when i make

YEAR={"\$(=only(Year))"}

it's ok.... perfect... BUT when i make the last year.... i make

YEAR={"\$(=only(Year)-1)"}  or YEAR={"\$(=only(Year-1))"}

and that makes the expression on zero....  "0" :| can't understand why...

anybody can help me ?!  i apreciate.......

nothing .... ?!

• ###### Head Count

Your expression syntax is wrong

if(

max({< YearEmployer = {"\$(=only(Year))"}>}YearMOunthEmployer

and( DemissionDate >= vMinDateCalendar or LEN( DemissionDate) = 0 ) ,1 ) ,NumEmployer )

here you have not specified what u want to take in the Max function and aggr is created

without any domension so correct that to get some results

• ###### Head Count

Qliksus ty...

i don't understand what u want to mean....

i made that with ur answer.....

max({< YearEmployer = {"\$(=only(Year))"}>}YearMOunthEmployer)

and(

DemissionDate >= vMinDateCalendar

or

LEN( DemissionDate) = 0

)

,1

)

,NumEmployer)

the aggr it's not the NumEmployer to get dimension ?!
