We are currently arguing that MATLAB is widely used within academia, but the only reference we have is Wikipedia which says that MATLAB was used by about one million in 2004. That is a long time ago... So I wonder:
1) How many universities use MATLAB?
2) How many people use MATLAB?
3) Where can I find such statistics?
The reason why I want to know is because I want to argue in research papers that MATLAB is a good platform to develop open access scientific analysis tools and convince reviewers by giving some concrete statistics on how common MATLAB is within academia. Given that, I would like world-wide stats and include all possible fields of science...
