This code will show and unordered list with the name of the category and the count the total posts containing.
Retrieves the 100 first categories (you can change the 100 for any number you want)
and for each of them (even the empty ones) shows cat_name and category_count
Copy the code above in the page file you want to dispay the result.
You will get some like this:
