Default Help with data total

I am trying to find out how I can create a form that will add up how many
times a certain letter combination appears in a row of data. To help
clarify, I am a Police Officer and we are required to collect the race / sex
of each offender we contact. In the column it has several choices (10),
ie....W/M, W/F, B/M, B/F, etc....

Then at the bottom of the form it wants a total of how many times each
appered. One box has W/M and wants a total, one B/M and asks a total and so
on.

I was wondering if there is some way in which I can make it where each time
one appears in this column it adds one in the correct total box. I hope this
make sense and any input is GREATLY appreciated!!!!

Assuming your data in A2:A100, your criteria start in B2

=COUNTIF($A$2:$A$100,B2)
