4.2. Indicator types

Indicator types define a factor (e.g. 100 for percentages) that will be applied during aggregation, and makes sure the system calculated indicator values are pre-formatted and need to further manipulation by the user to get percentages etc.

The indicator type maintenance panel has all of the same functions (Add new, Edit, Translate, Delete, and Information) as the Indicator maintenance section.

There are only two fields that need to be filled in to create an indicator type, Name and Factor, as seen below. Name refers to the Indicator type (e.g. Per cent, Per thousand, Per ten thousand, etc). The factor is the numeric factor that will be applied during the calculation of the indicator.
