Row Counts From Statistics In Azure DW

Derik Hammer has a script to estimate row counts in an Azure SQL Data Warehouse table:

Azure SQL Data Warehouse is a massively parallel processing (MPP) architecture designed for large-scale data warehouses. An MPP system creates logical / physical slices of the data. In SQL Data Warehouse’s case, the data has 60 logical slices, at all performance tiers. This means that a single table can have up to 60 different object_ids. This is why, in SQL Data Warehouse, there is the concept of physical and logical object_ids along with physical names.

Below is a query for finding row counts of tables in SQL Data Warehouse which accounts for the differences in architecture between my earlier script, written for SQL Server, and SQL Data Warehouse.
