Is there a metric that calculates "uniqueness of data"? For example if i have two sets of 200 observations,

DataSet 1 has 70 unique values but 4 values take up the next 130 observations. DataSet 2 has 60 unique values but no value is seen more than 4 times.

DataSet 2 would score higher for "uniqueness".
