@@rowcount will only return the count for the number of rows inserted.

If you need the total records for the table, try something like: SELECT COUNT(column_name) FROM table_name;

In the example above "NULL" values will not be included.  If you want to include the "NULL" values try something like: SELECT COUNT(*) FROM table_name;

Here's a snippet that counts inserted values and then shows total records in a temp table. This is to show difference between inserted records count versus records found in table.
--- Create, populate, and query the temp ID table. 
	DECLARE @valid TABLE (
		id INT,
		row_id INT IDENTITY( 1, 1 )
	);


	/** 
		Populate the valid ID table using UNION of
		SELECT statements. This will manually populate the
		ID column and the let the row_id auto-populate the
		row index values.
	**/ 
	INSERT INTO @valid
	(
		id
	)(

		SELECT 2 UNION ALL
		SELECT 4 UNION ALL
		SELECT 6 UNION ALL
		SELECT 8 UNION ALL
		SELECT 10
	);


	/** 
		Select the number of records that were affected
		by the last SQL statement.
	**/ 
	SELECT
		v.id,
		v.row_id,
		( @@RowCount ) AS [total_rows_inserted]
	FROM
		@valid v

--- Add some more data, but don't count using @@RowCount.
--- This is to illustrate the total number of records in table.
INSERT INTO @valid
	(
		id
	)(

		SELECT 12 UNION ALL
		SELECT 14 UNION ALL
		SELECT 16 UNION ALL
		SELECT 18 UNION ALL
		SELECT 20 UNION ALL
		SELECT 22 UNION ALL
		SELECT 24
	);

--- Output total number of rows in table. 
SELECT COUNT(*) AS [total_rows_in_table] FROM @valid;

--- Select all records to validate the total count listed above
SELECT *  FROM @valid;
