You could use the function COUNTIF. So you do another table, like:

 stackoverflow | =COUNTIF(range of your survey, previous column)
 superuser     | =COUNTIF(range of your survey, previous column)
 serverfault   | =COUNTIF(range of your survey, previous column)

You will obtain something like:

stackoverflow  | 2
superuser      | 2
serverfault    | 1

Which is what you wnt
