I need count the number of previous episodes within 28 days of the current episode.

the attached has some sample data from the episodes table (fig 1). fig 2 is the desired output with the calculated field (prev_episodes)

I’d like to use an analytics function rather than an aggregate function.

thanks

SELECT e.*,
       COUNT(
           *
       )
       OVER(
           PARTITION BY person_id
           ORDER BY dte
           RANGE INTERVAL '28' DAY PRECEDING
       ) - 1
           prev_episodes
  FROM episodes e

instead of subtracting one to exclude the current row
you could use BETWEEN on the range

SELECT e.*,
       COUNT(
           *
       )
       OVER(
           PARTITION BY person_id
           ORDER BY dte
           RANGE BETWEEN INTERVAL '28' DAY PRECEDING AND INTERVAL '1' DAY PRECEDING
       )
           prev_episodes
  FROM episodes e
