I was trying to find the ratio of "how many downvotes I have cast (on others' posts obviously)" : "how many downvotes my posts has received".

The question basically boils down to finding "how many downvotes my posts has received?" because finding out "how many downvotes I have cast" is trivial and the info is publicly visible to everyone on my profile.

So, I need a query for "The number of downvotes a particular user's posts has received so far".

1 Answer 1


There is a query present to find the User Ratio of Upvotes to Downvotes Received.

    SUM(CASE WHEN VoteTypeId = 2 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS [Up Votes],
    SUM(CASE WHEN VoteTypeId = 3 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS [Down Votes],
    (CAST(SUM(CASE WHEN VoteTypeId = 2 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS float) / CAST(SUM(CASE WHEN VoteTypeId = 3 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS float)) AS [Up Votes to Down Votes]
    Votes v inner join Posts p on v.PostId=p.Id

There is another query present to find the number of up vote and down vote ratio for all users.

    @Rickross SEDE is updated once a week, on Sunday 03:00 UTC. The first entry in the FAQ has the relative duration since the last update (also shown on the front page).

    @Rickross yeah, it is a fair question. If you need uptodate data a better option is using the Stack API but that requires scripting in some programming language and is limited in its capabilities, specially if you want a data aggregation over lots of rows. For your specific use case described here I think SEDE with at max 7 days old data is fine.
