Measure (data warehouse)
In a data warehouse, a measure is a property on which calculations (e.g., sum, count, average, minimum, maximum) can be made.
For example if a retail store sold a specific product, the quantity and prices of each item sold could be added or averaged to find the total number of items sold and total or average price of the goods.
