v.univar  Calculates univariate statistics of vector map
features.
Variance and standard deviation is calculated only for points if specified.

 map=name [required]

Name of vector map
Or data source for direct OGR access
 layer=string

Layer number or name
Vector features can have category values in different layers. This number
determines which layer to use. When used with direct OGR access this is
the layer name.
Default: 1
 type=string[,string,...]

Input feature type
Options: point, line, boundary, centroid, area
Default: point,line,area
 column=name

Name of attribute column
 where=sql_query

WHERE conditions of SQL statement without ’where’ keyword
Example: income < 1000 and population >= 10000
 percentile=integer

Percentile to calculate (requires extended statistics flag)
Options: 0100
Default: 90
v.univar calculates univariate statistics on (by default) an attribute
of, or, through the
d flag on distance between, vector map features.
Attributes are read per feature and per category value. This means that if the
map contains several features with the same category value, the attribute is
read as many times as there are features. On the other hand, if a feature has
more than one category value, each attribute value linked to each of the
category values of the feature is read. For statistics on one attribute per
category value, instead of one attribute per feature and per category, see
v.db.univar.
Extended statistics (
e) adds median, 1st and 3rd quartiles, and 90th
percentile to the output.
When using the
d flag, univariate statistics of distances between vector
features are calculated. The distances from all features to all other features
are used. Since the distance from feature A to feature B is the same like the
distance from feature B to feature A, that distance is considered only once,
i.e. all pairwise distances between features are used. Depending on the
selected vector
type, distances are calculated as follows:
 •
 type=point: point distances are considered;
 •
 type=line: line to line distances are considered;
 •
 type=area: not supported, use type=centroid instead (and see
v.distance for calculating distances between areas)
The examples are based on the North Carolina sample dataset.
