Primary Measurements Overview

All primary measurements are aggregates of credits, and therefore primary measurements are leaf-period values themselves. Credits from multiple leaf periods do not usually aggregate into a primary measurement; however, held credits can be aggregated. For example, credits calculated in January and held until February are aggregated to the February primary measurement along with February credits.

A primary measurement represents credits for just the leaf period (for example, a month’s worth of credits). There can be many different primary measurements for a particular period. In most cases, each primary measurement represents an aggregate of different types of credits; however, depending on the compensation rule, you can have multiple primary measurements from the same types of credits. There is a separate primary measurement for each leaf period (for example, a month).
