Yes, but you should probably use count(*) because that's what you mean.
Using count(<fieldname>) requires you (someone else reading your code)
to examine the nullability of <fieldname> to be able to determine if it
will result in the same thing as count(*) or not.

This is usually more important than you think - readability.
