Suppose I have a finite multiset of $n$ elements (a "population" I guess we can call it). Suppose this set has a proper mode, appearing m out of $n$ times. What term(s) do statisticians use:
- For $m$?
- For the ratio $m/n$?

They are the shortest (clear) terms that I know. I am a statistician, but there can be other terms that I don't know. I have seen people use the term "frequency" referring to both absolute and relative frequency and the precise meaning was clear from the context.
