Betreff: st: data entries

Hello,

I have a string variable whose entries look like as below: 

2011017:1
2011018:1
2011018:2
2011026:1
2011040:1
2011041:1

I need to determine how many of these entries have "2" at the end (i.e. as
you see above some entries have  ":1" and some others have ":2". I would
like to determine the number of entries with ":2" at the end.

What would be the command for this?
