avg
agg.avg
returns an aggregator that computes the average (mean) of values, within an aggregation group, for each input column.
Syntax
avg(cols: List[str]) > Aggregation
Parameters
Parameter  Type  Description 

cols  List[str]  The source column(s) for the calculations.

caution
If an aggregation does not rename the resulting column, the aggregation column will appear in the output table, not the input column. If multiple aggregations on the same column do not rename the resulting columns, an error will result, because the aggregations are trying to create multiple columns with the same name. For example, in table.agg_by([agg.sum_(cols=[“X”]), agg.avg(cols=["X"])
, both the sum and the average aggregators produce column X
, which results in an error.
Returns
An aggregator that computes the average (mean) of values, within an aggregation group, for each input column.
Examples
In this example, agg.avg
returns the average value of Number
as grouped by X
.

In this example, agg.avg
returns the average value of Number
(renamed to Avg
), as grouped by X

 source
 result
In this example, agg.avg
returns the average value of Number
, as grouped by X
and Y
.

 result
In this example, agg.avg
returns the average value of Number
, and agg.std
returns the standard deviation of Number
, as grouped by X
