```Anthony,

Here´s how I´d do it.

Load a package that contains the function Frequencies
In[1]:=
<<Statistics`DataManipulation`

Then apply the function Frequencies to a Partition of w that contains pairs
of it´s elements, each of them starting with each of the elements of w
(except the last one, since it doesn´t have one to follow it).

In[2]:=
Frequencies[Partition[w,2,1]]

Out[2]=
{{3,{0,0}},{4,{0,1}},{4,{1,0}},{2,{1,1}}}

The third element of this list shows w contains 4 elements 1 that are
followed by an element 0 .
