There are some threads on generating statistics about various things that require some fairly lengthy expressions to be cut and paste into smart lists and/or views.  Do some searches if you are interested in that kind of stuff.  But the basics are really easy!

Just go to a Panes view.  Like the included view in Audio > Panes (on the left navigation area).  Every category at the top shows you how many are in each category.  So for example, right now I have a pane for Genre, one for Artist, and one for Album.  The top row of each of these tells me a total.  Total number of Artists at the top of the Artists Pane.  Total number of Albums at the top of the Albums Pane.  For basic stats, it doesn't get a lot easier than that.  :)

You can add whatever Pane categories you want if they aren't already there.  Just right click and add what you want to see.
