# Python – Values Frequency Index List

• Last Updated : 10 Jul, 2020

Sometimes, while working with Python tuples, we can have a problem in which we need to extract the frequency of each value in tuple. This has been solved earlier. We can have a modification in which we need to create list in which index represents the key and value of it represents the frequency of that index number. This kind of problem can have applications in competitive programming domain. Let’s discuss certain ways in which we need to solve this problem.

Input : test_list = [(‘Gfg’, 1), (‘is’, 1), (‘best’, 1), (‘for’, 1), (‘geeks’, 1)]
Output : [0, 5, 0, 0, 0, 0]

Input : test_list = [(‘Gfg’, 5), (‘is’, 5)]
Output : [0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 2]

Method #1 : Using loop
This is brute force approach by which this task can be performed. In this, we perform the task of assigning frequency by iterating and assigning pre-initialized list.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ``# Values Frequency Index List``# Using loop`` ` `# initializing list``test_list ``=` `[(``'Gfg'``, ``3``), (``'is'``, ``3``), (``'best'``, ``1``), (``'for'``, ``5``), (``'geeks'``, ``1``)]`` ` `# printing original list``print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list))`` ` `# Values Frequency Index List``# Using loop``res ``=` `[``0` `for` `_ ``in` `range``(``6``)]``for` `ele ``in` `test_list:``    ``res[ele[``1``]] ``=` `res[ele[``1``]] ``+` `1`` ` `# printing result ``print``(``"The Frequency list : "` `+` `str``(res)) `

Output :

```The original list is : [('Gfg', 3), ('is', 3), ('best', 1), ('for', 5), ('geeks', 1)]
The Frequency list : [0, 2, 0, 2, 0, 1]
```

Method #2 : Using `Counter()` + list comprehension
The combination of above functionalities is used to solve this problem. In this, we perform the task of computing frequencies using Counter() and rendering in list is done by list comprehension.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ``# Values Frequency Index List``# Using Counter() + list comprehension``from` `collections ``import` `Counter`` ` `# initializing list``test_list ``=` `[(``'Gfg'``, ``3``), (``'is'``, ``3``), (``'best'``, ``1``), (``'for'``, ``5``), (``'geeks'``, ``1``)]`` ` `# printing original list``print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list))`` ` `# Values Frequency Index List``# Using Counter() + list comprehension``cntr ``=` `Counter(ele[``1``] ``for` `ele ``in` `test_list)``res ``=` `[cntr[idx] ``for` `idx ``in` `range``(``6``)]`` ` `# printing result ``print``(``"The Frequency list : "` `+` `str``(res)) `

Output :

```The original list is : [('Gfg', 3), ('is', 3), ('best', 1), ('for', 5), ('geeks', 1)]
The Frequency list : [0, 2, 0, 2, 0, 1]
```
