We propose general frameworks to inductively count number fields building on previously known counting results and good uniformity estimates in different flavors. By this method, we prove new results in counting number fields with Galois groups ranging from direct product to wreath product. We will also mention interesting applications en route. This involves my thesis and on going project with Melanie Matchett Wood and Robert J. Lemke Oliver.
