These fact tables represent events that occurred at a specific point in time and space. They let us analyze data in extreme detail. Rows in these tables are found only if events take place. For example if there is no observation for a patient a given period then there is no information available for him and we won`t get any data for him in that period. Because of their unpredictable sparseness, we use other types of fact tables as described below.
