MOVING_VAR
Description

Calculates the variance for each window. It can be applied to INT or FLOAT columns.

Syntax
 MOVING_VAR ( table.column, start, end )
NULL handling

NULL values are ignored, meaning that they do not influence the result. If all values of a group are NULL, the result for this group is also NULL.

Tips

A group with only one non-NULL value will give the result NULL, since variance of one value only is undefined.

Examples
