#### Use

#### Features

#### Activities

You can enter statistical key figures for use in reporting or as tracing factors for period-based allocations. This also occurs within a transaction-based allocation in Controlling.

Example

The cafeteria costs are apportioned monthly to all the cost centers in the company based on the number of employees in each cost center. The statistical key figure "Employees" is used as the tracing factor for assessing (apportioning) the costs.

End of the example.

Note the key figure category when you enter the statistical key figures:

*Fixed values*are carried forward from the posting period to all the subsequent posting periods of the fiscal year. Changes are valid for the subsequent periods until a new value is entered (for example, number of employees).

Key figures defined as

*Totals values*are valid only in the posting period in which they are entered. When changing values, you first have to undo the existing value with a reversed +/- sign and then enter a new value (for example, number of telephone units).
