Smalyshev moved this task from All WDQS-related tasks to SDAW on the Wikidata-Query-Service board.

Shouldn’t both be normalized to the “1” unit (25‰ = 2.5% = 0.025)?

Also, isn’t this something that needs to be done in Wikibase rather than in the query service?

Well, not exactly since "1" unit means "no unit" in Wikidata right now. So I'm not sure this is right. Maybe it is... I wasn't a big fan of using "percentage" as a unit but maybe normalizing it to "1/100 of no unit" would work. Would be glad to hear other ideas on this.
