## Benchmarking

I have a data set which contains a few attributes of certain cities. For eg, population, no of cars, area etc. In my design (mockup below),the page is split in two halves where one half would represent the figures of the home city and the other would represent that of the benchmark. The user has the option to select the home branch (one in count) and the benchmark (can be multiple).

For the dataset, there is a single table which has the attributes of all the cities. Wanted to know how to go about doing this?

## Re: Benchmarking

I would do the following load in the script: Load distinct City AS SingleCity Resident <dataset>; This makes a table with one field named singlecity. In your front end you can put a listbox with this field. to select the single city. Within the calculations of the single city part of the sheet you can then use set analysis. if you don't know how to use set analysis you should look up some videos and such to get you started. So for this singlecity side use something like this: {<city={\$(=max(singlecity))}>}

## Re: Benchmarking

I think you would need to use Set Analysis to control what changes on each side based on the filter choices.

The 2 filters would need to be separate lists of cities so that you could specify in the Set Analysis.

If you can provide more details about the data I can give you a better answer.

## Re: Benchmarking

You will need to use set analysis to have values for 2 different selections. and use a fieldlist or dummy table that is not connected to the data to select your home city.

With the set analysis you then check what the homecity selected is and input that as set analysis to the calculations. for the other side you use normal sellections. Hope this was clear enough.

Hi Mark,

A rough view of the dataset would be like this:

Hi Bram,

Sorry, but I am fairly new to Qliksense. Can you please elaborate more on this? You can use the below mentioned dataset for reference:
