Footnotes displaying attributes in table views

Table of Content


Definition

Footnotes are coded or uncoded attributes for which a star icon is displayed within brackets (*) directly left-aligned in the table cells, or next to the data view title.
On cell mouse-over, a tooltip shows the attribute(s) and its value(s). If several footnotes are to be displayed for the same coordinates of a given view, then there will be only one star icon. Several attributes in the same footnote are separated by a new line in the tooltip.

footnotes attributes

Displaying attributes as footnotes, instead of flags for instance, is defined per Data Explorer instance by the configuration: see coded and uncoded attributes returned as footnotes and coded attributes returned as flags.


Level of display

Footnotes for attributes can be attached/displayed at the following levels in the table view (from highest level to lowest):

  • data view (title)
  • grouping of members of any dimensions
  • time series
  • observation

These different levels of display are represented in the following use cases.

Use case 1a: the attribute value is the same for all cells in the table

When:

  • an attribute is attached to the SDMX dataset level (and defined as none by the data owner, meaning that the value of the attribute will not vary with any other structure component of the data view), OR
  • all dimensions of the data view have unique values (and are thus displayed in the subtitle),

Then the (*) icon is shown behind the data view title.

Case 1a

Use case 1b: the attribute value has only one dimension relationship

NOTE

Released in February 28, 2020 Release .Stat Suite JS 4.0.0

When an attribute is attached to only one single dimension, and that dimension has only one single value (and thus that dimension is in the data view subtitle),
Then the (*) icon is shown behind the dimension name shown in the subtitle.

Case 1b

Use case 2a: the attribute value is the same for all cells in any row section of the table

When:

  • use case 1 is not applicable, AND
  • only one target dimension is displayed in a row section, and all remaining target dimensions (if any) have only one value (and thus are in the table sub-title),

Then the (*) icon is displayed behind the dimension value of the corresponding row section.

Case 5

Use case 2b: the attribute value is the same for all cells in any row section of the table

When:

  • use case 1 is not applicable, AND
  • more than one target dimension is displayed in a row section, and all remaining target dimensions (if any) have only one value (and thus are in the table sub-title),

Then the (*) icon is shown on the right of the corresponding row section cell.

Case 6

Use case 3: the attribute value is the same for one dimension in the rows of the table

When:

  • use case 2 is not applicable, AND
  • more than one target dimension is displayed in the row axis, and all remaining dimensions (if any) are either on the row section axis or have only one value (and thus are in the table sub-title),

Then the (*) icon is dislayed in row header cells behind the dimension value(s) (thus, cells in row without an attribute value do not show the (*) icon).

Case 8

Use case 4a: the attribute value is the same for all cells in any column of the table

When:

  • use case 3 is not applicable, AND
  • only one target dimension is displayed in the columns, and all remaining target dimensions (if any) have only one value (and thus are in the table sub-title),

Then the (*) icon is displayed behind the target label in a columns header.

Case 4

Use case 4b: the attribute value is the same for all cells in any column of the table

When:

  • use case 3 is not applicable, AND
  • more than one target dimension is displayed in the columns, and all remaining target dimensions (if any) have only one value (and thus are in the table sub-title),

Then the (*) icon is displayed in a specific column (grey part) in the column corresponding to the attribute value(s) (thus, columns without an attribute value do not show the (*) icon).

Case 3

Use case 5: the attribute value is different between the cells in the table

When use case 4 is not applicable,
Then the (*) icon is shown in the cell corresponding to the specific attribute value (thus, cells without an attribute value do not show the (*) icon).
