Data grid - Aggregation

Use aggregation functions to combine your row values.

You can aggregate rows through the grid interface by opening the column menu and selecting from the items under Aggregation.

The aggregated values will be rendered in a footer row at the bottom of the grid.

Pass aggregation to the grid

Structure of the model

The aggregation model is an object. The keys correspond to the columns, and the values are the name of the aggregation functions to use.

Initialize aggregation

To initialize aggregation without controlling its state, provide the model to the initialState prop.

Controlled aggregation

Use the aggregationModel prop to control aggregation passed to the grid.

You can use the onAggregationModelChange prop to listen to changes to aggregation and update the prop accordingly.

Disable aggregation

For all columns

You can disable aggregation by setting the disableAggregation prop to true.

It will disable all features related to aggregation, even if a model is provided.

For some columns

In case you need to disable aggregation on specific column(s), set the aggregable property on the respective column definition (GridColDef) to false. In the example below, the title and year columns are blocked from being aggregated:

Usage with row grouping

When the row grouping is enabled, the aggregated values will be displayed in two places:

  1. On the grouping rows - the grid will display each group aggregated value on its grouping row

  2. On the top-level footer - the grid will add a top-level footer to aggregate all the rows, as it would with a flat row list

You can customize this behavior using the getAggregationPosition prop.

This function takes the current group node as an argument (null for the root group) and returns the position of the aggregated value. This position must be one of the three following values:

  1. "footer" - the grid will add a footer to the group to aggregate its rows

  2. "inline" - the grid will disable aggregation on the grouping row

  3. null - the grid will not aggregate the group

// Will aggregate the root group on the top-level footer and the other groups on their grouping row
// (default behavior)
getAggregationPosition=(groupNode) => (groupNode == null ? 'footer' : 'inline'),

// Will aggregate all the groups on their grouping row
// The root will not be aggregated
getAggregationPosition={(groupNode) => groupNode == null ? null : 'inline'}

// Will only aggregate the company groups on the grouping row
// Director groups and the root will not be aggregated
getAggregationPosition={(groupNode) => groupNode?.groupingField === 'company' ? 'inline' : null}

// Will only aggregate the company group "Universal Pictures" on the grouping row
getAggregationPosition={(groupNode) =>
(groupNode?.groupingField === 'company' &&
  groupNode?.groupingKey === 'Universal Pictures') ? 'inline' : null

// Will only aggregate the root group on the top-level footer
getAggregationPosition={(groupNode) => groupNode == null ? 'footer' : null}

The demo below shows the sum aggregation on the footer of each group but not on the top-level footer:

Usage with tree data

As with row grouping, you can display the aggregated values either in the footer or in the grouping row.

The demo below shows the sum aggregation on the Size column and the max aggregation on the Last modification column.


By default, aggregation only uses the filtered rows. You can set the aggregationRowsScope to "all" to use all rows.

In the example below, the movie Avatar is not passing the filters but is still used for the max aggregation of the gross column.

Aggregation functions

Basic structure

An aggregation function is an object describing how to combine a given set of values.

const minAgg: GridAggregationFunction<number | Date> = {
  // Aggregates the `values` into a single value.
  apply: ({ values }) => Math.min(...values.filter((value) => value != null)),
  // This aggregation function is only compatible with numerical values.
  columnTypes: ['number'],

The full typing details can be found on the GridAggregationFunction API page.

Built-in functions

The @mui/x-data-grid-premium package comes with a set of built-in aggregation functions to cover the basic use cases:

Name Behavior Supported column types
sum Returns the sum of all values in the group number
avg Returns the non-rounded average of all values in the group number
min Returns the smallest value of the group number, date, dateTime
max Returns the largest value of the group number, date, dateTime
size Returns the amount of cells in the group all

Remove a built-in function

Remove a built-in function for all columns

You can remove some aggregation functions for all columns by passing a filtered object to the aggregationFunctions prop.

In the example below, the sum aggregation function has been removed:

Remove a built-in function for one column

You can limit the aggregation options in a given column by passing the availableAggregationFunctions property to the column definition.

This lets you specify which options will be available, as shown below:

const column = {
  field: 'year',
  type: 'number',
  availableAggregationFunctions: ['max', 'min'],

In the example below, the Year column can be aggregated using the max and min functions, whereas all functions are available for the Gross column:

Create custom functions

You can pass custom aggregation functions to the aggregationFunctions prop.

An aggregation function is an object with the following shape:

const firstAlphabeticalAggregation: GridAggregationFunction<string, string | null> =
    // The `apply` method takes the values to aggregate and returns the aggregated value
    apply: (params) => {
      if (params.values.length === 0) {
        return null;

      const sortedValue = params.values.sort((a = '', b = '') => a.localeCompare(b));

      return sortedValue[0];
    // The `label` property defines the label displayed in the column header when this aggregation is being used.
    label: 'firstAlphabetical',
    // The `types` property defines which type of columns can use this aggregation function.
    // Here, we only want to propose this aggregation function for `string` columns.
    // If not defined, aggregation will be available for all column types.
    columnTypes: ['string'],

In the example below, the grid has two additional custom aggregation functions for string columns—firstAlphabetical and lastAlphabetical:

Aggregating data from multiple row fields

By default, the apply method of the aggregation function receives an array of values that represent a single field value of each row. For example, the sum aggregation function receives the values of the gross field.

In the example below, the values in the profit column are derived from the gross and budget fields of the row:

  field: 'profit',
  type: 'number',
  valueGetter: ({ row }) => {
    if (!row.gross || !row.budget) {
      return null;
    return (row.gross - row.budget) / row.budget;

To aggregate the profit column, you have to calculate the sum of the gross and budget fields separately, and then use the formula from the example above to calculate the aggregated profit value.

To do so, use the getCellValue callback on the aggregation function to transform the data that are being passed to the apply method:

const profit: GridAggregationFunction<{ gross: number; budget: number }, number> = {
  label: 'profit',
  getCellValue: ({ row }) => ({ budget: row.budget, gross: row.gross }),
  apply: ({ values }) => {
    let budget = 0;
    let gross = 0;
    values.forEach((value) => {
      if (value) {
        gross += value.gross;
        budget += value.budget;
    return (gross - budget) / budget;
  columnTypes: ['number'],

Custom value formatter

By default, the aggregated cell uses the value formatter of its column. But for some columns, the format of the aggregated value may have to differ from the format of the other cell values.

You can provide a valueFormatter method to your aggregation function to override the column's default formatting.

const aggregationFunction: GridAggregationFunction = {
  apply: () => {
    /* */
  valueFormatter: (params) => {
    /* format the aggregated value */

Custom rendering

If the column used to display aggregation has a renderCell property, the aggregated cell will call it with a params.aggregation object to let you decide how you want to render it.

This object contains a hasCellUnit which lets you know if the current aggregation has the same unit as the rest of the column's data—for instance, if your column is in $, is the aggregated value is also in $?

In the example below, you can see that all the aggregation functions are rendered with the rating UI aside from size, because it's not a valid rating:


gridAggregationLookupSelector: (apiRef: GridApiRef) => GridAggregationLookup
// or
gridAggregationLookupSelector: (state: GridState, instanceId?: number) => GridAggregationLookup
// or
gridAggregationLookupSelector(state, apiRef.current.instanceId)
gridAggregationModelSelector: (apiRef: GridApiRef) => GridAggregationModel
// or
gridAggregationModelSelector: (state: GridState, instanceId?: number) => GridAggregationModel
// or
gridAggregationModelSelector(state, apiRef.current.instanceId)
