Susurate: Comparable Indicators

Modified on Tue, 29 Mar 2022 at 10:46 AM

Susurate allows you to compare you program data. This can be done by comparing indicators that are the same and have similar unit measures such as currency or beneficiaries. 

Comparable indicator visualisation can be used when you would like to know the percentage of one indicator in relation to another indicator. This means you no longer need a data analysist to figure out what the percentage of a particular indicator should be for tracking purposes. 

For example if you are a CSI manager you would like to ensure that you are managing your risk in terms of how much the contribution you would like to make to a beneficiary. Funding a majority of the beneficiary's budget creates a financial risk and it might also raise some flags with regards to the financial sustainability of the organisation.

To get to the percentage visualisation of how much your contribution will be with regards to the overall beneficiary income, a graph can be created using comparable indicators displayed in a pie chart as below

Comparable indicators reduces the number of indicators to be used for an initiative as Susurate automatically does the percentage calculation for you depending on the type of graph used and provided that the unit used for the indicators is the same.

To have a percentage displayed on the graph, you will have to pick the doughnut, pie chart or the polar area type of chart

Another way comparable indicators can be used is to see which of your projects has the most participation if you are implementing different projects such as youth programs.
