postgreSQL Inserting multiple rows

You can insert multiple rows in the database at the same time:

INSERT INTO person (name, age) VALUES
 ('john doe', 25),
 ('jane doe', 20);

Insert from select

You can insert data in a table as the result of a select statement:

INSERT INTO person SELECT * FROM tmp_person WHERE age < 30;

Note that the projection of the select must match the columns required for the insert. In this case, the tmp_person table has the same columns as person.
