STEP 3: This will open up the Power Query Editor.

We want to group this data by Country and show how many times each Country appeared in the table. (i.e. Australia appears 4 times in this table)

STEP 5: Make sure to select Country for Group By, and select Count Rows for the Operation.

This will group your table by Country value, and count the number of occurrences of each country.

For example, the country of Australia appears 4 times in our table.
