Count and other aggregations may be performed only over data . The selection is state of the UI rather than data. In order to achieve such behavior you will need to reflect the selection state in your business object. For example you may add an IsSelected property to your business object which bound to the selection state of the row representing that object.
Then you can use regular aggregate function to show the selected items count per group even when it is collapsed.
