I'm just wondering how to calculate or to get a raw number of the average reputation per user in Stack Overflow or any other Stack Exchange sites?

select avg(reputation) from users returns 130 in 77ms on SEDE, for Stack Overflow.

The Stack Exchange Data Explorer lets you write some pretty complicated queries, too, and if you select certain patterns of column data types, the thing can render your data as a chart - that can really help you dissect how your favorite beta site is doing, if you're also active in other Stack Exchange communities. And queries can be executed on any site's data, so it's easy to compare two sites' results.

Like, the distribution of avid users by reputation tier, or a voting and user activity history graph, or your (or someone else's) reputation history, or whatever else comes to your mind!

You could probably get this information from the Stack Exchange Data Explorer. There's a tutorial on how to use it here. I think you can find just about anything you want if you know how to ask it the right question :)
