Definition

The indicator(s) that meet the results. There can be multiple indicators for each result.

Rules

This element must occur at least once (within each parent element).

Attributes

@measure

An IATI code defining the unit of measure in which the value is reported.

This attribute is required.

This value must be of type xsd:string.

This value must be on the IndicatorMeasure codelist.

@ascending

A boolean describing the behaviour of the indicator. It is “true” if the indicator improves from small to large (e.g. clinics built); false if it improves from large to small (e.g. cases of a disease).

This value must be of type xsd:boolean.

Example Usage

Example usage of indicator in a result of an iati-activity.

This element is a parent for other child elements. It is also contained within a result element.
The @measure attribute declares a valid code (1) from the IndicatorMeasure codelist.
The @ascending boolean of 1 also declares that the data is asscending.
