- property Hierarchy.slicing: bool#
Whether the hierarchy is slicing or not.
A regular (i.e. non-slicing) hierarchy is considered aggregable, meaning that it makes sense to aggregate data across all members of the hierarchy.
For instance, for a Geography hierarchy, it is useful to see the worldwide aggregated Turnover across all countries.
A slicing hierarchy is not aggregable at the top level, meaning that it does not make sense to aggregate data across all members of the hierarchy.
For instance, for an As of date hierarchy giving the current bank account Balance for a given date, it does not provide any meaningful information to aggregate the Balance across all the dates.
