Python | Tuple Column element frequency

• Last Updated : 19 Feb, 2020

In python we need to handle various forms of data and one among them is list of tuples in which we may have to perform any kind of operation. This particular article discusses the ways of finding the frequency of the Kth element in list of tuple. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this can be performed.

Method #1 : Using map() + count()
The map function can be used to accumulate the indices of all the tuples in a list and the task of counting the frequency can be done using the generic count function of python library.

 # Python3 code to demonstrate# Tuple Column element frequency# using map() + count()  # initializing list of tuplestest_list = [(1, 'Geeks'), (2, 'for'), (3, 'Geeks')]  # printing the original listprint ("The original list is : " + str(test_list))  # initializing K K = 1  # using map() + count()# Tuple Column element frequencyres = list(map(lambda i : i[K], test_list)).count('Geeks')  # printing resultprint ("The frequency of element at Kth index is : " + str(res))
Output :
The original list is : [(1, 'Geeks'), (2, 'for'), (3, 'Geeks')]
The frequency of element at Kth index is : 2

Method #2 : Using Counter() + list comprehension
List comprehension performs the task of getting the Kth element of the tuples and the counting part is handled by Counter function of collection library.

 # Python3 code to demonstrate# Tuple Column element frequency# using Counter() + list comprehensionfrom collections import Counter  # initializing list of tuplestest_list = [(1, 'Geeks'), (2, 'for'), (3, 'Geeks')]  # printing the original listprint ("The original list is : " + str(test_list))  # initializing K K = 1  # using Counter() + list comprehension# Tuple Column element frequencyres = Counter(i[K] for i in test_list)  # printing resultprint ("The frequency of element at Kth index is : " + str(res['Geeks']))
Output :
The original list is : [(1, 'Geeks'), (2, 'for'), (3, 'Geeks')]
The frequency of element at Kth index is : 2
