I have a table of people:
Name, City, Sex
I want a table where each line is the city, and the number of Males and Females.

For example, this is what I tried, and I know it's wrong:


Select City, count(name) where Sex = 'M' as NumberM,
count(name) where Sex = 'F' as NumberF
Group by City


how do I do this?
Thanks.

Here's one way:

Select City
       ,sum(case when sex = 'm' then 1 else 0 end) as NumberM
       ,sum(case when sex = 'f' then 1 else 0 end) as NumberF
Group by City

Another way is to use pivot


select City,[m]  AS NumberM,[f] AS NumberF
from (select City,sex,1 as cnt
      from table
      )m
pivot (sum(cnt) for sex in ([m],[f]))p
