How do I search for issues based on column colors?

As a JIRA user I need to search and report on issues based on the 'category colors: To Do, In Progress, Done'  so that when I use the Simplified Software Workflow and add or remove statuses I can see all of the issues assigned to one of the categories.

@Glenn Weissel, the Status colors are actually Status Category.  You can use this JQL to get your issues grouped:


statusCategory = "To Do" 


statusCategory = "In Progress" 


statusCategory = Done 

Brilliant! Thank you Peter!
