Note:
The multiline columns will not appear in the Totals column list in SharePoint and this will count which has value in the columns. So better is to choose the columns which are mandatory from the SharePoint list.

In this example, the title column is a mandatory column and in all the items they have filled the Title so the Count is coming as 3. But if you can see the Age column, in 2 rows the Age is blank and only in one column, the value is there. So the Count is coming as 1. So it is always to show the Count in mandatory columns.
