Using %-of-All breakdown mode for analysis

The %-of-All breakdown mode shows each measurement as a proportion of the total measurement for all data. If the dataset is filtered, the filtered dataset totals are used.

The percentage values are displayed in both the visualizations and measurement labels. Specific visualization results also depend on data selections and visualization settings, such as group-views, axis scales and extents. 

In the sample chart capture above,

  • Different colors show different property types as selected using the comparison tool. Both the top data status panel, as well as the pop-up for room type describe the meaning of the colors.
  • Since the breakdown mode is %-of-all, both the chart visualization and pop-up display the percent of total listings for each combination of property type and room type. For example, 6.4% of all listings are townhouses with a private room.

Special Features

  • When using %-of-all mode, the resulting visualizations are identical to absolute breakdown modes.
  • This mode can only be used with the Count measurement function, or a Sum function with only positive values, so that the percentages can be calculated correctly.
