I am collecting statistics on one spreadsheet, based on data on another spreadsheet. The statistics will be the counts of items in multiple columns, for instance, if Column A has "x", and Column Z has "x", then what is the count. Sometimes, the counts is from three or more columns.

A couple or ways to count with several conditions:

=COUNTIFS(Range1; Criterion1 [; Range2; Criterion2 [; ...]])
