In this blogpost I analysed a dataset containing R software downloads spanning from October 2017 to 2018. Unsurprisingly, I found that the most populated countries have the most total downloads. Using the `tidyverse`, `lubridate`, and `tmap`packages, I found out which countries most download the software. Since large countries with large populations will have more total downloads, I decided to inspect number downloads per 1,000 capita. This extra step revealed that small, developed countries, such as Hong Kong, Switzerland, Iceland, Singapore, Liechtenstein, the Netherlands and Denmark have the most downloads per 1,000 capita. An exception to this were the US and Australia with at least one download per 1,000 capita despite being larger countries. Lastly, I looked into which months had the most R downloads by sub-regions and I find that almost everywhere, the summer isn't a very popular season for R downloads.
