Find out about the range of statistical functions and techniques that are available for analyzing data stored within a PostgreSQL database.

In this course, database expert Adam Wilbert introduces you to a number of advanced query techniques that you can use to better understand your data. Statistical analyses involve understanding the shape and size of the full data set, and deeper insights can be gained by grouping data together to obtain some very useful metrics. Adam shows you how to create basic groups and apply aggregate calculations, then moves into window functions that create subgroups for more granular analysis. He goes over statistics that are based on sorted data within groups, such as the median value, the first and third quartiles of a dataset, the most frequent value, and more. Adam also covers ranking, hypothetical sets, percentile functions, and conditional expressions for further manipulating query result sets. He concludes with some additional querying techniques that you may find useful in solving common problems.
