welcome! I guess you got used to what WordPress does automatically to integrate with some Analytics (I believe they use Google Analytics). Have you setup Google Analytics already for your site? Depending on your needs, it may be a valuable exercise.
If all you want are simple statistics, you can use DreamHost’s provided stats: follow instructions on https://help.dreamhost.com/hc/en-us/articles/216510258-Panel-statistics-overview
This guide recommends not using wordpress stats plugins and use Google Analytics instead: https://help.dreamhost.com/hc/en-us/articles/215300817-Fine-tuning-your-WordPress-plugins
