PostgreSQL AGGREGATE functions
What is an aggregate function?
An aggregate function produced a single result for an entire group or table.
Aggregate functions are used to produce summarized results. They operate on sets of rows. They return results based on groups of rows. By default, all rows in a table are treated as one group. The GROUP BY clause of the select statement is used to divide rows into smaller groups.
