Python | Integer count in Mixed List

The lists in python can handle different type of data types in it. The manipulation of such lists is complicated. Sometimes we have a problem in which we need to find the count of integer values in which the list can contain string as a data type i.e heterogenous. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this can be performed.

Method #1 : Using list comprehension + len() + isinstance()
This particular problem can be solved by filtering our search of len using the isinstance method, we can filter out the integer value and then can use len function to get required length value.

# Python3 code to demonstrate 
# Integer count in Mixed List
# using list comprehension + len() + isinstance()
  
# initializing list
test_list = [3, 'computer', 5, 'geeks', 6, 7]
  
# printing original list 
print ("The original list is : " + str(test_list))
  
# using list comprehension + len() + isinstance()
# Integer count in Mixed List
res = len(list(i for i in test_list if isinstance(i, int)))
  
# printing result
print ("The length of integers in list is : " + str(res))

Output :

The original list is : [3, 'computer', 5, 'geeks', 6, 7]
The length of integers in list is : 4

 

Method #2 : Using lambda + map() + len() + isinstance()
The above problem can also be solved using the lambda function as a map() in the len() along with the isinstance method which performs the task of checking for integer values.

res = len([ele for ele in temp if ele])
  
# printing result
print ("The length of integers in list is : " + str(res))

The original list is : [3, 'computer', 5, 'geeks', 6, 7]
The length of integers in list is : 4
