Thanks for reporting the issue.
Then, I would say it's a problem caused by a corrupted profile.

Could you please reset your Libreoffice profile ( https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile ) and

I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to
'UNCONFIRMED' if the issue is still present

I can confirm this bug.
My status bar wouldn't display page number or word count. I restarted it in safe mode and the displays worked. So I tried deleting my profile and starting writer again - the same problem again. Restarted it in safe mode, the status bar works fine. So it's not a case of profile corruption.

I think, it's a duplicate of bug 116208.
