# GEOMEAN

Returns the geometric mean of the numbers in a column.

To return the geometric mean of an expression evaluated for each row in a table, use GEOMEANX function (DAX).

## Syntax

```
GEOMEAN(<column>)
```

#### Parameters

Term | Definition |
---|---|

column | The column that contains the numbers for which the geometric mean is to be computed. |

## Return value

A decimal number.

## Remarks

Only the numbers in the column are counted. Blanks, logical values, and text are ignored.

GEOMEAN( Table[Column] ) is equivalent to GEOMEANX( Table, Table[Column] )

## Example

The following computes the geometric mean of the Return column in the Investment table:

```
=GEOMEAN( Investment[Return] )
```
