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.

  • tikz/PGF for the win!

    @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 ;)

    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!

  • I can see that usage is trending upwards over time, but why does it zigzag like that?
