    Statistics of Countries

    Hi, I have a database table named 'members'.
    1 of the column in the table members is named 'country'.

    This is what I intend to do.
    I want to make use of the data in 'country' to calculate the popularity of the country.

    I want to show what are the top 5 countries are.
    I have got something like the code below to start with but I am stuck with $r["country"] as I do not know what to do with the data to achieve my goal.

    $r["country"] contains 2 character of the country abbreviation.

    Inputs required.
    Thank you.

    PHP Code:
    $q $database->query("SELECT `country` FROM `members`");
    $country $database->count_rows($q);
    if (
    $country >= 1) {
        while (
    $r $database->fetch_row($q)) {

    Use this query:
    SELECT country, COUNT(*) AS memberCount
    FROM members 
    GROUP BY country 
    ORDER BY memberCount DESC
    LIMIT 5
