## Calculating percentile rank in MySQL

I have a very big table of measurement data in MySQL and I need to compute the percentile rank for each and every one of these values. Oracle appears to have a function called percent_rank but I can’t find anything similar for MySQL. Sure I could just brute-force it in Python which I use anyways to populate the table but I suspect that would be quite inefficient because one sample might have 200.000 observations.
