# Weighted Stats extension for PostgreSQL

This extension provides weighted statistical aggregate functions for PostgreSQL. It is based on the work of Ronan Dunklau and Peter Eisentraut in the weighted_mean package. Thanks as usual to Andrew Gierth, who showed how to do these things efficiently.

The weighted stats are defined as two-column aggregation functions. The first column contains the measure to be used. The second contains the weight of each measure.

This extension is implemented as a C library.

# Installation

You can either install it with the pgxn client:

pgxn install weighted_stats

Or from source:

git clone git://github.com/davidfetter/weighted_stats.git make && sudo make install

Then, create the extension in the specific database:

CREATE extension weighted_stats;

# Usage

select weighted_stats(unitprice, quantity) from sales;

This is equivalent to:

select case when sum(quantity) = 0 then 0 else sum(unitprice * quantity) / sum(quantity) end from sales;
