Calculation Aggregation

Calculation aggregation is sometimes needed with calculated columns.

If the Calculation aggregate is used, any calculated columns will be re-executed up the hierarchy, so that the calculation is done on group-level aggregates instead of row-level values. Furthermore, each term in the calculation will be summed by default, but this can be controlled if a different aggregation is needed.

The aggregation applied to each column included in the calculation expression can be specified using the following syntax:


For example:


[exposure]/[risklimit:mean] also has the same result since no aggregation specified defaults to sum


Most of the Panopticon aggregation methods are supported, except those that involve more than one column.
