All you need to know about CREATE STATISTICS

This webinar will give an overview of CREATE STATISTICS in PostgreSQL. This command allows the database to collect multi-column statistics, helping the optimizer understand dependencies between columns, produce more accurate estimates, and better query plans.

The following key topics will be covered during the webinar:

  • Why CREATE STATISTICS may be needed at all
  • How the command works
  • Which cases CREATE STATISTICS already addresses
  • What improvements are in the queue for future PostgreSQL versions (either already committed to PostgreSQL 13 or beyond)
