There are several such lists.  The one you want is probably the one
the help system uses.  For example,


lists a number of functions that count various things.  I don't think
any of them is exactly what you want, which could be accomplished in a
couple of ways:


gives counts of all the different values in x;


gives the count of occurences of 3 in x.
