You can record particles for individual size groups using the following way:

Display - > particle tracks
Report type - > Step by step
Report to file
Color by Particle variable (Particle Diameter)

This will write the particle tracking history in a file. The last column gives the particle diameter. From this you can find out the number of particles in a size group. In this way you can find out the particles in a density/mass/temperature etc. group by selecting the variables in the Color By

See below for details:
