SUM

SUM adds a whole column of values.

SUM is an aggregate function it is normally used with GROUP BY.

   SELECT region, SUM(population)
    FROM bbc
   GROUP BY region 

With a GROUP BY region statement each region shows up just once. The SUM column gives the total for each region.

SELECT region, SUM(population)
  FROM bbc
 GROUP BY region
