Places (Search) API Developer's Guide

Rating Object Structure

Provides a summary of how users rated a place.

Attribute Type Description
average Number (double) The average rating across all users.
count Number (positive integer) The number of individual votes on the place.

Place without Ratings

Note: If the place has no ratings (yet), both the average and the count values are zero. But if the place cannot be rated (i.e. a street), the whole rating object is not present.
