    It's pretty much a fancy way of saying a total amount.  Thefreedictionary.com defines aggreates as;

    "1. Constituting or amounting to a whole; total: aggregate sales in that market.
    2. Botany Crowded or massed into a dense cluster.
    3. Composed of a mixture of minerals separable by mechanical means.
    1. A total considered with reference to its constituent parts; a gross amount: "An empire is the aggregate of many states under one common head" (Edmund Burke).
    2. The mineral materials, such as sand or stone, used in making concrete."
