I am working on a SQL query that will return data in the following format

"Company","Female","Male"
"Cage Data","3","4"
"Google","400","534"

The record set defines a company, the amount of female employees, and the amount of male employees.  Currently this is my query which returns the number of male employees
SELECT tusers.company, count(tclassextenddata.baseid)
FROM tusers
INNER JOIN tclassextenddatauseractivity AS tclassextenddata
ON tclassextenddata.baseid = tusers.userid
INNER JOIN tclassextendattributes
ON tclassextenddata.attributeid = tclassextendattributes.attributeid
WHERE tusers.subtype = 'Student'
  AND tclassextendattributes.name = 'gender'
  AND tclassextenddata.attributevalue = 'Female'
  AND tusers.inactive = 0
GROUP BY company

Open in new window


This is from a CMS engine so it isn't the best means of database layout, but I can't change it.

Something like this might work:
SELECT tusers.company, sum(case tclassextenddata.attributevalue when 'Female' then 1 else 0 end) NumFemale, sum(case tclassextenddata.attributevalue when 'Female' then 0 else 1 end) NumMale
FROM tusers
INNER JOIN tclassextenddatauseractivity AS tclassextenddata
ON tclassextenddata.baseid = tusers.userid
INNER JOIN tclassextendattributes
ON tclassextenddata.attributeid = tclassextendattributes.attributeid
WHERE tusers.subtype = 'Student'
  AND tclassextendattributes.name = 'gender'
  AND tusers.inactive = 0
GROUP BY company

tlovie's code should work, IF the attributevalue is ALWAYS 'Female' or anything else should be counted as "Male".
I added the condition in the where clause to make it perform better, and tweaked the sums to count Male/Female explicitly.

SELECT tusers.company,
sum(case tclassextenddata.attributevalue when 'Female' then 1 end) NumFemale,
sum(case tclassextenddata.attributevalue when 'Male' then 1 end) NumMale
FROM tusers
INNER JOIN tclassextenddatauseractivity AS tclassextenddata
ON tclassextenddata.baseid = tusers.userid
INNER JOIN tclassextendattributes
ON tclassextenddata.attributeid = tclassextendattributes.attributeid
WHERE tusers.subtype = 'Student'
  AND tclassextendattributes.name = 'gender'
  AND tclassextenddata.attributevalue IN ('Female', 'male')   ---- add this
  AND tusers.inactive = 0
GROUP BY company
0

Thanks guys.  That query seems to be perfect.

One more side question.  Is it possible to give the records a default value of 0 if none of one gender is found?  Example Company A has 4 males and no females so the query returned would be:

[code]
"Company","Male","Female"
"Comp A","4","0"
[/code]

Seems I oversimplified :)  Didn't think it likely there would be no male/female
The "else 0" from tlovie would have handled your requirement.

SELECT tusers.company,
sum(case tclassextenddata.attributevalue when 'Female' then 1 else 0 end) NumFemale,
sum(case tclassextenddata.attributevalue when 'Male' then 1 else 0 end) NumMale
FROM tusers
INNER JOIN tclassextenddatauseractivity AS tclassextenddata
ON tclassextenddata.baseid = tusers.userid
INNER JOIN tclassextendattributes
ON tclassextenddata.attributeid = tclassextendattributes.attributeid
WHERE tusers.subtype = 'Student'
  AND tclassextendattributes.name = 'gender'
  AND tclassextenddata.attributevalue IN ('Female', 'male')   ---- add this
  AND tusers.inactive = 0
GROUP BY company
