Regularly I see someone say something like, "There are N cases of foo=bar in the map".

Is there an easy way to get a count of the hits using Overpass Turbo? I can see the data pane, but it would seem I need to do a <ctrl>+<f> search for foo=bar, copying the output syntax exactly, to get a count.

Forgive me if I'm missing something obvious here: I've checked the titles of ~50 questions and also the documentation on the wiki here: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Overpass_turbo#Saving_and_sharing_queries

for any query you run on Overpass Turbo, the counts are displayed in the right bottom corner, on top of the map

Not relevant to this query but generally taginfo is useful https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/

Based on the pharmacy example on this page I tried

[out:json][timeout:25];
(
  node["highway"="bus_stop"]({{bbox}});
  way["highway"="bus_stop"]({{bbox}});
  relation["highway"="bus_stop"]({{bbox}});
);
out count;

which for the area selected returned

{
  "version": 0.6,
  "generator": "Overpass API 0.7.55.1009 5e627b63",
  "osm3s": {
    "timestamp_osm_base": "2019-10-24T15:04:02Z",
    "copyright": "The data included in this document is from www.openstreetmap.org. The data is made available under ODbL."
  },
  "elements": [

{
  "type": "count",
  "id": 0,
  "tags": {
    "nodes": "728",
    "ways": "0",
    "relations": "0",
    "total": "728"
  }
}

] }

Thank you: that's more complex than I can probably handle at the moment, but great to be pointed to the list of worked examples on the wiki page you linked to: not a bad tutorial at all! :-)
