# Count the documents with a field value beginning with 13

To count the documents, use $count. For values beginning with 13, use$regex. You can use $regex. Let us create a collection with documents − > db.demo570.insertOne({Information:{Value:"13675"}});{ "acknowledged" : true, "insertedId" : ObjectId("5e90959b39cfeaaf0b97b583") } > db.demo570.insertOne({Information:{Value:"14135"}});{ "acknowledged" : true, "insertedId" : ObjectId("5e9095a739cfeaaf0b97b584") } > db.demo570.insertOne({Information:{Value:"15113"}});{ "acknowledged" : true, "insertedId" : ObjectId("5e9095b639cfeaaf0b97b585") } > db.demo570.insertOne({Information:{Value:"13141"}});{ "acknowledged" : true, "insertedId" : ObjectId("5e9095c139cfeaaf0b97b586") } Display all documents from a collection with the help of find() method − > db.demo570.find(); This will produce the following output − { "_id" : ObjectId("5e90959b39cfeaaf0b97b583"), "Information" : { "Value" : "13675" } } { "_id" : ObjectId("5e9095a739cfeaaf0b97b584"), "Information" : { "Value" : "14135" } } { "_id" : ObjectId("5e9095b639cfeaaf0b97b585"), "Information" : { "Value" : "15113" } } { "_id" : ObjectId("5e9095c139cfeaaf0b97b586"), "Information" : { "Value" : "13141" } } Following is the query for faster performance that will use an index − > db.demo570.count({'Information.Value': { '$regex' : '^13' }});

This will produce the following output −
