count = cursor.rowcount

This read-only property returns the number of rows returned for SELECT statements, or the number of rows affected by DML statements such as INSERT or UPDATE. For an example, see Section, “MySQLCursor.execute() Method”.

For nonbuffered cursors, the row count cannot be known before the rows have been fetched. In this case, the number of rows is -1 immediately after query execution and is incremented as rows are fetched.

The rowcount property is like the mysql_affected_rows() C API function; see mysql_affected_rows().
