PERCENT_RANK

Applies to ✅ Open Source Edition   ✅ Express Edition   ✅ Professional Edition   ✅ Enterprise Edition

The PERCENT_RANK() hypothetical set function calculates the percent rank of the hypothetical value, i.e. the relative rank from 0 to 1 (CUME_DIST produces values from 1/N to 1)

SELECT 
  percent_rank(0) WITHIN GROUP (ORDER BY ID),
  percent_rank(2) WITHIN GROUP (ORDER BY ID),
  percent_rank(4) WITHIN GROUP (ORDER BY ID)
FROM BOOK
create.select(
         percentRank(val(0)).withinGroupOrderBy(BOOK.ID),
         percentRank(val(2)).withinGroupOrderBy(BOOK.ID),
         percentRank(val(4)).withinGroupOrderBy(BOOK.ID))
      .from(BOOK)

Producing:

+-----------------+-----------------+-----------------+
| percent_rank(0) | percent_rank(2) | percent_rank(4) |
+-----------------+-----------------+-----------------+
|             0.0 |            0.25 |            0.75 |
+-----------------+-----------------+-----------------+
