SQL Tutorial – Find MIN() and MAX() value in a column.

You have a table and you want to find the minimum or maximum value of a column in that table. Here we have a country table and we want to find the minimum and maximum value of the LifeExpectancy column or we want to find the minimum and maximum LifeExpectancy value by continents.

Solution –

To find the minimum value in a column we use the MIN() function and for maximum value we use the MAX() function.

SELECT
    MIN(LifeExpectancy) as min_LifeExp,
    MAX(LifeExpectancy) as max_LifeExp
FROM
    country

To find the minimum and maximum life expectancy by continent, we have to first group the data by GROUP BY clause and then Apply the MIN() and MAX() function.

SELECT
    Continent,
    MIN(LifeExpectancy) as min_LifeExp,
    MAX(LifeExpectancy) as max_LifeExp
FROM
    country
GROUP BY
    Continent
