Parameters :

axis : int, optional

Axis along which to count the non-masked elements. If axis is None, all non-masked elements are counted.

>>> import as ma
>>> a = ma.arange(6).reshape((2, 3))
>>> a[1, :] = ma.masked
>>> a
masked_array(data =
 [[0 1 2]
 [-- -- --]],
             mask =
 [[False False False]
 [ True  True  True]],
       fill_value = 999999)
>>> a.count()

When the axis keyword is specified an array of appropriate size is returned.

>>> a.count(axis=0)
array([1, 1, 1])
>>> a.count(axis=1)
array([3, 0])
