In SharePoint Server, I have an OOTB Approval workflow, and I am trying to implement JQuery script in Script Editor Web Part to show the total number of approved and rejected workflow requests in SharePoint List as below

SharePoint Approval Workflow Status

But it seems that I have something wrong with my JS code where the number of approved and rejected items are not calculated as expected, Could you please help me to know How to get items count per SharePoint Workflow Approval Status using JavaScript where the workflow is OOTB Approval workflow.

<body oncontextmenu="return false" onkeydown="return false;" onmousedown="return false;">
<div class="container">
		<div class="box requestBox">

Looks like the issue is mainly related to the Internal column name of the Approval Status column as well as the assigned Workflow Approval Status value at this line in your code:

if(item.ODATA__ModerationStatus == "Approved")

So in your case, you should do the following:

  1. replace this column name ODATA__ModerationStatus with the internal column status name.
  2. Assign the Workflow Approval Status Value to the corresponding SharePoint Workflow Approval Status Code as below:

SharePoint Workflow Status Code

SharePoint Workflow Status Value                     SharePoint Workflow Status Code
Not Started                                                                                   0
Failed on Start                                                                               1
In Progress                                                                                   2
Error Occurred                                                                               3
Canceled                                                                                      4
Completed                                                                                    5
Failed on Start (retrying)                                                                  6
Error Occurred (retrying)                                                                  7
Canceled                                                                                      15
Approved                                                                                     16
Rejected                                                                                      17

Based on the above info, you have to update your code with the correct workflow internal column name and the corresponding SharePoint workflow approval status code as below

if(item.Approve == "16") approvedCount += 1 ; 
 if(item.Approve == "17") rejectedCount += 1 ;
 if(item.Approve == "2") inprogressCount += 1 ;

As per my test on my side, I got the below output
