How do I count the frequency of a given number in a column?

In a column I have a list of numbers (1-5) and I want to know how many 1s,
2s, 3s, etc. What is the formula?

How do I count the frequency of a given number in a column?

Try something like this:
For numbers in A1:A10

B1: =COUNTIF(A1:A10,1)
(Returns the count of 1's)

or
C1: (a number between 1 and 5)
B1: =COUNTIF(A1:A10,C1)
(Returns to the count of items that match the value in C1)

Does that help?

One more methos.

Assuming your digits are in A1:A100

In B1:B5 enter digits 1 through 5.

Select C1:C5

In activecell C1 enter =FREQUENCY(A1:A100,B1:B5) and hit CTRL + SHIFT + ENTER

Excel will place curly brackets around the formula because it is an ARRAY
formula.

The frequency of each number in B1:B1 will be returned to C1:C5
