This question really belongs in meta.tex.stackexchange, but I just created an account and don't have enough rep to post there.

I used the June 2013 Stack Exchange data dump to look at the time series (by month) of the 5 most popular tags on tex.stackexchange. Here's a plot:

Count of top 5 tags on TeX.SE over time

Interpretation is left to the reader.

This is more of a fun fact than a question (sorry about that), although I'd certainly like to hear any thoughts on other fun facts that could be had from this data.

This question came from our site for users of TeX, LaTeX, ConTeXt, and related typesetting systems.

    @Jubobs Maybe it's winning as a tag because it causes the most problems ;) You have more biblatex questions than bibtex questions, and still, I'm quite convinced that more people use BibTeX than biblatex ;) – yo' Jan 14 '14 at 8:38
  • @tohecz You may be right! – jubobs Jan 14 '14 at 8:44

    Alex, how difficult was it to produce the plot? I would be for instance very insterested in the comparison of graphics, tikz-pgf and pstricks. Thanks! – yo' Jan 14 '14 at 13:52
  • I can see that usage is trending upwards over time, but why does it zigzag like that? – Hammerite Jan 15 '14 at 17:11
