JOIN two SELECT statement results

Is it possible to join the results of 2 sql SELECT statements in one statement? I have a database of tasks where each record is a separate task, with deadlines (and a PALT, which is just an INT of days from start to deadline. Age is also an INT number of days.)

I want to have a table which has each person in the table, the number of tasks they have, and the number of LATE tasks they have (if any.)

I can get this data in separate tables easily, like so:

SELECT ks, COUNT(*) AS '# Tasks' FROM Table GROUP BY ks

returning data like:

ks        # Tasks
person1   7
person2   3

and then I have:

SELECT ks, COUNT(*) AS '# Late' FROM Table WHERE Age > Palt GROUP BY ks

which returns:

ks        # Late
person1   1
person2   1

And I want to join the results of these two select statements (by the KS)

I’m trying to avoid using a temp table, but if that’s the only practical way to do this, I’d like to know more about using temp tables in this fashion.

I also tried to do some kind of count() of rows which satisfy a conditional, but I couldn’t figure out how to do that either. If it’s possible, that would work too.

Addendum: Sorry, I want my results to have columns for KS, Tasks, and Late

KS        # Tasks   # Late
person1   7         1
person2   3         1
person3   2         0  (or null)

Additionally, I want a person to show up even if they have no late tasks.

SUM(CASE WHEN Age > Palt THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) Late
works well, thanks for this answer!

Two select statements also work, using a LEFT JOIN to join them also works, and I understand now how to join multiple selects in this fashion

Answer

SELECT t1.ks, t1.[# Tasks], COALESCE(t2.[# Late], 0) AS [# Late]
FROM 
    (SELECT ks, COUNT(*) AS '# Tasks' FROM Table GROUP BY ks) t1
LEFT JOIN
    (SELECT ks, COUNT(*) AS '# Late' FROM Table WHERE Age > Palt GROUP BY ks) t2
ON (t1.ks = t2.ks);
