Google Sheets Query: How to Use the COUNT Function


You can use the COUNT() function in a Google Sheets query to count the number of rows that meet certain conditions.

Method 1: Count Total Rows

=QUERY(A1:C13, "select count(A)")

Method 2: Count Total Rows that Meet One Criteria

=QUERY(A1:C13, "select count(A) where B>100")

Method 3: Count Total Rows that Meet Multiple Criteria

=QUERY(A1:C13, "select count(A) where A='Mavs' OR B>100")

=QUERY(A1:C13, "select count(A) where A='Mavs' AND B>100")

The following examples show how to use each of these methods in practice.
