SQL Server Rounding Functions – Round, Ceiling and Floor

By: Jeremy Kadlec | Read Comments (17) | Related Tips: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | More > Functions – System
Problem

I saw your recent tip on Calculating Mathematical Values in SQL Server and have some related issues as I try to round values in my application. My users and me have a difference of opinion on some of the calculations in our reporting applications. All of the code is in T-SQL, but I think the reporting issues are related to data types and rounding down or rounding up rules. Do you have any insight into these issues? I would like to see some examples with a variety of coding options.

Solution

Rounding can become misunderstood if the underlying data types and rounding functions are not understood. Depending on the data type (integer, float, decimal, etc.) the rounded value can be different. In addition, depending on the SQL Server rounding function (ROUND(), CEILING(), FLOOR()) used in the calculation the values can differ as well. As such, it is important to find out the user rounding requirements then translate those requirements into the appropriate T-SQL command.

From a definition perspective, let’s start here:

  • ROUND – Rounds a positive or negative value to a specific length and accepts three values:
    • Value to round
      • Positive or negative number
      • This data type can be an int (tiny, small, big), decimal, numeric, money or smallmoney
    • Precision when rounding
      • Positive number rounds on the right side of the decimal point
      • Negative number rounds on the left side of the decimal point
    • Truncation of the value to round occurs when this value is not 0 or not included
  • CEILING – Evaluates the value on the right side of the decimal and returns the smallest integer greater than, or equal to, the specified numeric expression and accepts one value:
    • Value to round
  • FLOOR – Evaluates the value on the right side of the decimal and returns the largest integer less than or equal to the specified numeric expression and accepts one value:
    • Value to round

Let’s walk through each function with a few different data types to see the results.

SQL Server ROUND, CEILING and FLOOR Examples for Integer Data Types

Example 1a – In this first example let’s just look at rounding a positive integer for the precision value of 1 yields all three rounding functions returning the same value. In this example we are using a variable with the functions and check out the result commented out on the right of the function.

Example 1b – Since the CEILING AND FLOOR functions do not have any optional values, let’s test some options with the ROUND function. In this example, let’s see the impacts of a negative number as the precision as well as the specifying additional positions that exceed the value to round. Check out these results with the result commented out on the right of the function.

Example 1c – Let’s expand the digits in this example with the ROUND function and see the impacts with the result commented out on the right of the function.

Example 1d – Let’s round a negative integer and see the impacts with the result commented out on the right of the function.

SQL Server ROUND, CEILING and FLOOR Examples for Decimal, Numeric and Float Data Types

Example 2a – With a decimal data type and the ROUND function with various length parameters (i.e. 1, 2 or 3) yields different final values in our example. The 5 in the second digit to the right of the decimal point is significant when the length parameter is 1 when rounding the value. In addition, with the decimal data type the CEILING and FLOOR functions take the decimal places into consideration for differing values as well.

Example 2b – Here is a quick example of using the numeric data type with the ROUND function. This follows much of the same behavior as the decimal data type.

Example 2c – In the final example, with a float data type you can see the same type of behavior as was the case with the decimal and numeric examples above with the ROUND, CEILING and FLOOR functions.

Next Steps

Last Update: 2017-01-31

Technically, there aren’t an “insufficient number of digits” from example 1b. When rounding to the nearest 100 (or 1,000), 6 is just closer to zero. Same thing in 1c; 444 is closer to zero than to 1,000 or 10,000.

Good tip and explanation. This is pretty logical overall, but sometimes you really need to stop and think it through. These examples are a great help with that.

Monday, August 12, 2013 – 5:00:56 PM – Scott Coleman

In answer to ClaudioRound’s question “why this rounding does not work” (for 172.765).

Subtracting 128 from this value drops the two leftmost bits, so it gains two more fractional bits resulting in 101100.11000011110101110000101000111101011100001010010. (The mantissa is always 53 bits long in a float.) This is about 44.76500000000000057, so even though it has the same fractional digits the value of “ROUND(44.765, 2)” is 44.77.

Another fun fact is that “ROUND(CAST(172.7650000000000160090000000000000099 AS FLOAT), 2)” returns 172.76, but if you add a trailing 0 then “ROUND(CAST(172.76500000000001600900000000000000990 AS FLOAT), 2)” returns 172.77. Don’t ask me why.

The moral of the story is that if you really care about exact fractional values then don’t use FLOAT or REAL. Even casting it to DECIMAL before ROUNDING may help.

Alabama hospice company AseraCare loses first round of False Claims trial –

Hospice company AseraCare loses first round of False Claims trial

Hospice company AseraCare loses first round of False Claims trial

A jury in Alabama delivered a blow to AseraCare on Thursday in a case seeking to determine whether the hospice provider admitted Medicare beneficiaries who were not eligible for end-of-life care in order to pull in more dollars.

The jury examined whether individual medical records supported 121 hospice claims and found 104 of those claims to be false or unsupported, sources close to the case said Thursday. The case will now move to a second phase in which the jury will examine whether AseraCare knowingly submitted false claims. Such knowledge, or at least reckless disregard for the truth, is required to prove liability in False Claims Act cases.

The trial could leave AseraCare on the hook for $200 million in damages, which would make it the largest False Claims Act case ever involving a hospice provider, according to one whistle-blower attorney who is closely following the case.

Attempts to reach AseraCare and its attorneys for comment were not immediately successful Thursday afternoon.

AseraCare, a subsidiary of Plano, Texas-based Golden Living, which operates in 19 states, has fought the allegations in court documents, saying, in part, that reasonable minds can differ in assessing whether a person is eligible for hospice care. Federal law requires two physicians to certify that a person is likely to live no longer than six more months before that person can be eligible for hospice care .

The prognostication of death by a physician is a complex, highly variable and inexact process under the best of circumstances, a fact recognized both by Medicare and in the clinical literature, according to a brief AseraCare filed in the case.

But attorneys say Thursday’s jury decision is a major victory for the government and the whistle-blowers who filed the complaint that triggered the federal investigation.

Mary Inman, a partner with Constantine Cannon who represents whistle-blowers, noted that the jury reached its conclusion even though it was only allowed to see part of the evidence. The judge in the case made the unusual move of dividing the case into two parts one addressing whether the claims were false, and the other whether the false claims were knowingly submitted. Normally, liability is decided in just one part of a False Claims Act case, although damages may be decided in another, Inman said.

The deck was definitely stacked against [the government] in this trial, in that the jury was only allowed to see such a narrow sliver of the evidence, and even with that sliver, the fact that they found that the overwhelming majority of claims were false is great, Inman said.

She said she wouldn’t be surprised if AseraCare chooses to settle now rather than face potential damages after the second phase of the trial.

She also said the case could cause hospice providers to change their business practices.

It sends a very strong signal to the for-profit hospice industry that they need to be very careful in who is making their eligibility determinations, and that they’re doing that in a way that complies with all of the government standards, and there’s not undue influence being exerted on medical doctors and others making those determinations, Inman said.

Once beneficiaries enter hospice care they also generally must give up curative care, she noted, calling it egregious that some beneficiaries who might have benefited from curative care may have given it up for inappropriate hospice care.

But Mark Silberman, a partner at Duane Morris who has represented hospices in fraud investigations, said there’s another potential concern when the government makes judgments about hospice eligibility after the fact. He said it’s important to evaluate the decision to admit a patient to hospice with the information that was available at the time that decision was made.

I think the worst-case scenario is that people who would benefit from hospice may not have it available because conscientious hospice providers might be concerned that the reasonableness of their decisions will be questioned, and that the consequences could be dire, Silberman said.
