This is the analysis that accompanies the blogpost SPSS is dying. R is surging.

To redo the analysis:

  • Run the scholar scraper which saves citations.csv. Note that Google Scholar will block you after around ~20 searches, so only do a few each day.
  • Go to and download the trends for some packages. Rename the .csv to *trends.csv' and edit it to be proper in a proper format (remove the first two lines)
  • Run graphs.r to reproduce the graph.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
