<p>The domain of statistical and scientific databases is targeted here, and the class of aggregate queries which are very often encountered in this domain is considered. Such a query is aimed at retrieving some aggregate characteristics of the raw data. The tree-based statistics access method (TBSAM), which provides support for the efficient processing of aggregate queries, is presented. It is related to the B/sup tree and also processes the B/sup tree's efficient update properties. Complementing TBSAM is the provision of a grouped update algorithm for minimizing expensive indexed database updates.</p>
