# Python | Count unique sublists within list

Given a list of lists, the task is to find the count of unique sublists within list.

Examples:

```Input: [['Geek', 'for', 'geeks'], ['geeks', 'for'],
['for', 'Geeks', 'geek'], ['Geek', 'for', 'geeks']]

Output:
{('geeks', 'for'): 1, ('for', 'Geeks', 'geek'): 1,
('Geek', 'for', 'geeks'): 2}
```

Below are some ways to achieve the task.

Method #1: Using Iteration

 `# Python code to count unique sublist within list ` ` `  `# Input list initialization ` `Input` `=` `[[``'Geek'``, ``'for'``, ``'geeks'``], [``'geeks'``, ``'for'``], ` `         ``[``'for'``, ``'Geeks'``, ``'geek'``], [``'Geek'``, ``'for'``, ``'geeks'``]] ` ` `  `# Output list initialization ` `Output ``=` `{} ` ` `  `# Using Iteration ` `for` `lis ``in` `Input``: ` `    ``Output.setdefault(``tuple``(lis), ``list``()).append(``1``) ` `for` `a, b ``in` `Output.items(): ` `    ``Output[a] ``=` `sum``(b) ` ` `  `# Printing output ` `print``(Output) `

Output:

{(‘Geek’, ‘for’, ‘geeks’): 2, (‘geeks’, ‘for’): 1, (‘for’, ‘Geeks’, ‘geek’): 1}

Method #2: Using Counter

 `# Python code to find count of unique list in list of list ` ` `  `# Importing counter from collection ` `from` `collections ``import` `Counter ` ` `  `# Input list initialization ` `lst ``=` `[[``1``, ``2``, ``3``], [``4``, ``5``, ``6``], [``3``, ``2``, ``1``], [``1``, ``2``, ``3``]] ` ` `  `# Using counter ` `Output ``=` `Counter([``tuple``(i) ``for` `i ``in` `lst]) ` ` `  `# Printing output ` `print``(Output) `

Output:

```Counter({(1, 2, 3): 2, (3, 2, 1): 1, (4, 5, 6): 1})
```

Method #3: Using Pandas

 `# Python code to count unique sublist within list ` ` `  `# Importing  ` `from` `collections ``import` `Counter ` `import` `pandas as pd                      ` ` `  `# Input list initialization ` `lst ``=` `[[``1``, ``2``, ``3``], [``4``, ``5``, ``6``], [``3``, ``2``, ``1``], [``1``, ``2``, ``3``]] ` ` `  `# Getting count ` `dict` `=` `Counter([``tuple``(i) ``for` `i ``in` `lst]) ` ` `  `# Creating pandas dataframe ` `Output ``=` `pd.DataFrame(data ``=``{``'list'``: ``list``(``dict``.keys()), ` `                         ``'count'``: ``list``(``dict``.values())}) ` ` `  `# Printing output ` `print``(Output) `

Output:

```count       list
0      1  (3, 2, 1)
1      1  (4, 5, 6)
2      2  (1, 2, 3)
```
