I have a model hierarchy that looks like: User has many days, a day has many items. I'm trying to collect cheap (processing) statistics about the items, specifically on the count of duplicates. Ultimately I want to know if an item is such that it is included in many days, and further more to know the rank of top items in the system. Currently I have a Count function that determines how many times an Item is found, but it's expensive to execute when it's run for thousands of items. Any ideas?
