Hi Rebecca,

I have checked and agree that the same issue exist on our side. What is
kind of peculiar is that annual and financial year indicators sum up
correctly when the indicator is a count indicator.

In my view the issue (DHIS2-2380 <https://jira.dhis2.org/browse/DHIS2-2380>),
listed as an improvement to be able to select whether you want to use the
sum or average for totals is confusing because one should really be using
the sum of all numerator values divided  by the sum of all denominator
values and not the average of all period values to calculate the indicators
correctly and if the former is used the values should be correct regardless
if it is percentages or raw values reported.

I will report a bug report for this now.

*Subject:* [Dhis2-users] DHIS 2.28 Pivot Table Aggregation/Totals

Hi DHIS community,

After upgrading to 2.28, my pivot tables’ *total* columns for indicators
always show *averages* instead of *sums. *

I checked that the indicators’ numerators contains only data elements with
“Sum” aggregation type, the denominators are just 1, and the pivot table’s
Options->Aggregation Type is set to “Sum”.. But the totals continue to
display as averages. Is there some sort of trick or workaround to get it to
display sums again?

I found a similar request in Jira (DHIS2-2380
<https://jira.dhis2.org/browse/DHIS2-2380>), but it hasn’t been updated in
a while. Here’s a screenshot of the issue on the Play demo 2.28 server
(build 2e8c1db).

Thanks in advance for your help!
