[R] Decimals in R/SQL

When I am writing in sqldf or RSQLite I lose the decimals in my matrix. The only way I can get decimals is by multiplying by 1.00000, etc. I have tried manipulating the options, but it is only effective once I multiply by 1.0000.

I appreciate any suggestions!



z <- sqldf ("select ST,
SUM(AGEP*PWGTP)*1.000000000/SUM(PWGTP)*1.00000000000000 as wgtage from ss09 group by ST")

z shouldn't be whole numbers.
