Don't know whether Firebird has internal functions for this or not and it is likely that there are more elegant solutions available, but the below queries should be ways to get what you ask (although I don't know whether you want to return all values for mode and whether or not you want the average in case of two median values).

execute block returns (mode integer) as declare variable occurences integer; declare variable dummy integer; begin select <MyField>, count(*) from <MyTable> group by 1 order by 2 desc rows 1 into :dummy, :occurences; for select <MyField> from <MyTable> group by 1 having count(*) = :occurences into :mode do suspend; end execute block returns (median decimal(9, 1)) as declare variable occurences integer; declare variable RowsFrom integer; declare variable RowsTo integer; begin select count(*) from <MyTable> into :occurences; RowsFrom = ((:occurences-1)/2)+1; RowsTo = (:Occurences/2)+1; with tmp(tmp) as (select cast(<MyField> as decimal(9, 1)) from <MyTable> rows :RowsFrom to :RowsTo) select sum(tmp)/(:RowsTo-:RowsFrom+1) from tmp into :Median; suspend; end select max(<MyField>)-min(<MyField>) as Range from <MyTable> HTH, Set 2016-12-01 4:41 GMT+01:00 Roberto Carlos rc.1...@bol.com.br [firebird-support] <firebird-support@yahoogroups.com>: > Basics of Statistics - Mathematics: Mean (Average), Median, Mode and Range > > I want to calculate Mean (Average), Median, Mode and Range in Firebird 2.5 > and 3.0. > > I know that Firebird internal function for Mean (Average) is AVG(), but > what are the internal functions for Median, Mode and Range in Firebird 2.5 > and 3.0? > > If there are not such functions, how can I calculate them using Firebird? > > Thanks for all and any help. > > > [Non-text portions of this message have been removed] > > > > ------------------------------------ > Posted by: Roberto Carlos <rc.1...@bol.com.br> > ------------------------------------ > > ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ > > Visit http://www.firebirdsql.org and click the Documentation item > on the main (top) menu.
