If you mean number of times values appear in source code, then see
Figure 331.1 for floating exponent values, Table 331.1 for dynamic
range of floating-point values, Figure 820.1 for integer constants,
Figure 878.1 for character constants, and many more statistics
besides in http://www.coding-guidelines.com/cbook/cbook1_0b.pdf
