     These numbers are current as of the last <command>VACUUM</> or
     <command>ANALYZE</> on the table.  The planner then fetches the
     actual current number of pages in the table (this is a cheap operation,
     not requiring a table scan).  If that is different from
     <structfield>relpages</structfield> then
     <structfield>reltuples</structfield> is scaled accordingly to
     arrive at a current number-of-rows estimate.  In this case the value of
     <structfield>relpages</structfield> is up-to-date so the rows estimate is
     the same as <structfield>reltuples</structfield>.

I don't understand the last sentence (In this case...). For me it
seems it is talking about the case when replages is not different from
what the planner fetches from the table. If so, why "In this case"?

I think what it meant is "In the example above, ...".  Feel free to
change it if you think that is clearer.

Oh, I see. I'm going to change "In this case" to "In the example above".

Done.


Yeah, that is clearer.
