Python | Add the occurrence of each number as sublists

Given a list of numbers, the task is to count the occurrence of each element and add as sublists.

Examples:

Input: l1 = [3, 5, 7, 2, 3, 5, 9.1]
Output: [[3, 2], [5, 2], [7, 1], [2, 1], [9.1, 1]]

Input: l1 = [1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 1]
Output: [[1, 3], [2, 2], [3, 1]]

Note: Format output 2d list is [[‘item1’, ‘count1’], [‘item2’, ‘count2’], …, [‘itemN’, ‘countN’]].

# Python program to add the occurrence
# of each number as sublists
def count_occur(list1, **kwargs):
      
    # iterate over list item
    for i in list1:
        row =[]
        ct = 0
      
        # count function will count occurence
        ct = list1.count(i)
        row.append(i)
        row.append(ct)
        # append 1d list items to 2d list
        list2.append(row)
      
    # below code is to eliminate 
    # repetitive list items
    for j in list2:
        if j not in unq_l2:
            unq_l2.append(j)
              
    return unq_l2
  
# Driver Code
l1 = [3, 5, 7, 2, 3, 5, 9.1]
list2 = []
unq_l2 = []
print(count_occur(l1))
