I'd be interested in knowing what the average distance of my finds from home is for each year since I started caching. I supect this year will be lower than usual, though I'd like to know by how much. Is there any way of doing this in PGC?

I dont think so. The only part of PGC having access to your home coordinates is profile stats so it can not even be hacked together in the challenge checker.
One thing to bear in mind is that some cachers change their home location. Project-GC would only have access to your current home location, so any such calculations would be done based on where you live now. If (for example) you were to move 1000km away, most of your previous years' averages would almost immediately change to approximately 1000km from home, even if you never travelled more than 50km from your previous home location.

Perhaps this is a stupid answer, but no, I don't think this is currently possible.
I believe you should change the category of this question to "Feature requests".

Haven't seen this in any statistics in PGC.

Also would recommend to change teh question to Feature request..

It would be fun not only to have this as a table but also as bar chart and radar chart like the Finds by bearing charts.

I was looking for something like this for a challenge, and I found the bar charts on the standard GC profile under statistics.  It is only a bar chart, and it is a cumulative total of all caches you have found.  It worked for what I needed (X  number of caches further than Y miles from home).  Just adding a comment in case you didn't see the spot.
