postgreSQL Aggregate Functions


Simple statistics: min(), max(), avg()

In order to determine some simple statistics of a value in a column of a table, you can use an aggregate function.
You could write this statement to get the minimum, maximum and average value:

SELECT min(age), max(age), avg(age)
FROM individuals;

string_agg(expression, delimiter)

You can concatenate strings separated by delimiter using the string_agg() function.

You could write SELECT ... GROUP BY statement to get names from each country:

SELECT string_agg(name, ', ') AS names, country
FROM individuals
GROUP BY country;

Note that you need to use a GROUP BY clause because string_agg() is an aggregate function.
