## Country Profile

In this tutorial you will use the SELECT command on the table `World`:

```SELECT name, continent, population FROM world
```
```SELECT name, continent, population FROM world
```

How to use WHERE to filter records. Show the name for the countries that have a population of at least 200 million. 200 million is 200000000, there are eight zeros.

```SELECT name FROM world
WHERE population>250000000
```
```SELECT name FROM world
WHERE population>200000000
```

Give the `name` and the per capita GDP for those countries with a `population` of at least 200 million.

per capita GDP is the GDP divided by the population GDP/population

```
```
```SELECT name, gdp/population FROM world
WHERE population > 200000000
```

Show the `name` and `population` in millions for the countries of the `continent` 'South America'. Divide the population by 1000000 to get population in millions.

```
```
```SELECT name, population/1000000 FROM world
WHERE continent='South America'
```

Show the `name` and `population` for France, Germany, Italy

```
```
```SELECT name, population FROM world
WHERE name IN ('France','Germany','Italy')
```

Show the countries which have a `name` that includes the word 'United'

```
```
```SELECT name FROM world
WHERE name LIKE '%United%'
```

Two ways to be big: A country is big if it has an area of more than 3 million sq km or it has a population of more than 250 million.

Show the countries that are big by area or big by population. Show name, population and area.

```
```
```select name,population,area
from world
where area>3000000
or population>250000000
```

USA and China are big in population and big by area. Exclude these countries.

Show the countries that are big by area or big by population but not both. Show name, population and area.

```
```
```select name, population,area
from world
where
(population>250000000 or area>3000000)
and not(population>250000000 and area>3000000)
```

Show the per-capita GDP for those countries with a GDP of at least one trillion (1000000000000 12 zeros). Round this value to the nearest 1000.

Show per-capita GDP for the trillion dollar countries to the nearest \$1000.

```
```
```select name, ROUND(gdp/population,-3)
from world
where
gdp>1000000000000
```

Show the `name` and `population` in millions and the GDP in billions for the countries of the `continent` 'South America'. Use the ROUND function to show the values to two decimal places.

For South America show population in millions and GDP in billions to 2 decimal places.
Divide by 1000000 (6 zeros) for millions. Divide by 1000000000 (9 zeros) for billions.
```
```
```SELECT name, ROUND(population/1000000,2),
ROUND(gdp/1000000000,2)
FROM world
WHERE continent='South America'
```
