frequency analysis of a DB column

In Python 2.1 are there any tools to take a column from a DB and do a
frequency analysis - a breakdown of the values for this column?

Possibly a histogram or a table saying out of 500 records I have one
hundred and two "301" ninety-eight "212" values and three-hundred
"410"?

Is SQL the way to for this?

Of course there'd be 1000's of values....

I'm not asking about connecting to the DB, just tools to collate and
tally this sort of thing.

Thanks,
Lee G.
