Check a box based on criteria in specific child rows


I am trying to find a formula that with check a box in a column based on a specific criteria in a project plan. For example, I have a column that identifies the status of an activity as late, in progress, at risk etc. I want to show under specific parent rows the total amount of late or at risk activities.
