Calculating distribution ratio


Hi all,

We were creating forms that collect data about human resource. These forms
have common data elements both at the district and health facility levels
(eg. Number of nurses).

But the responsibility of these staff is different at facility and district
levels. While they are doing clinical work at the facility, they are
administrative staff at district level.

Here's the design issue, if we use the same data element in both forms to
compare districts by nurses that do clinical work, the number of nurses at
district is added as well; which will inflate the ratio.

We are also contemplating creating two different data elements (clinical
and admin). But with this one we will have to create indicators to know the
total number of nurses in a district (both clinical and admin).

I presume some in the community have gone through this and we are looking
for inputs on how best to approach the design.
