This function enables you to create a count of the distinct people by the specified HR attribute.The default behaviour is to return a bar chart as typically seen in 'Analysis Scope'.

hrvar_count(data, hrvar = "Organization", return = "plot")

analysis_scope(data, hrvar = "Organization", return = "plot")



A Standard Person Query dataset in the form of a data frame.


HR Variable by which to split metrics, defaults to "Organization" but accepts any character vector, e.g. "LevelDesignation". If a vector with more than one value is provided, the HR attributes are automatically concatenated.


String specifying what to return. This must be one of the following strings:

  • "plot"

See Value for more information.


A different output is returned depending on the value passed to the return


  • "plot": 'ggplot' object containing a bar plot.

  • "table": data frame containing a count table.
