I have a content type where a taxonomy term is associated to it . I would like to know how could i count the number of content types by taxonomy term ?

You can use the following snippet, to get count of nodes by passing the term id

  $tids = array(1); //An array of term IDs to match.
  $nodes = taxonomy_select_nodes($tids);
  echo count($nodes) ;


You can use views to achieve this, check this similar question . It explains an example

You can try Term Node Count module. Though it is still for Drupal 6, but you will find the Drupal 7 compatible version from this discussion.
