# javascript Count the number of occurrences of an item in an array code example

## Example 1: javascript Count the occurrences of a value in an array

const countOccurrences = (arr, val) => arr.reduce((a, v) => (v === val ? a + 1 : a), 0);

// Examples
countOccurrences([2, 1, 3, 3, 2, 3], 2);                // 2
countOccurrences(['a', 'b', 'a', 'c', 'a', 'b'], 'a');  // 3

## Example 2: javascript Count the frequency of a value in an array

const countOccurrences = arr => arr.reduce((prev, curr) => (prev[curr] = ++prev[curr] || 1, prev), {});

// Examples
countOccurrences([2, 1, 3, 3, 2, 3]);               // { '1': 1, '2': 2, '3': 3 }
countOccurrences(['a', 'b', 'a', 'c', 'a', 'b']);   // { 'a': 3, 'b': 2, 'c': 1 }

## Example 3: count number of times an element is occuring in an array in javascript

Array.prototype.frequencies = function() {
var l = this.length, result = {all:[]};
while (l--){
result[this[l]] = result[this[l]] ? ++result[this[l]] : 1;
}
// all pairs (label, frequencies) to an array of arrays(2)
for (var l in result){
if (result.hasOwnProperty(l) && l !== 'all'){
result.all.push([ l,result[l] ]);
}
}
return result;
};

var freqs = [5, 5, 5, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 9, 4].frequencies();
alert(freqs[2]); //=> 5
// or
var freqs = '1,1,2,one,one,2,2,22,three,four,five,three,three,five'
.split(',')
.frequencies();
alert(freqs.three); //=> 3
