Try using the below code:

SELECT       `column`,

             COUNT(`column`) AS `value_occurrence` 

    FROM     `my_table`

    GROUP BY `column`

    ORDER BY `value_occurrence` DESC

    LIMIT    1;

Note: You can replace the column and my_table. You can also increase 1 if you want to see the N most common values of the column.
