CSDb: Quantify Me 2020 - Pandemus

Hey all.

Using Klaus' online channels I went and looked at the current state of the data at CSDb, to produce a new analysis with tools like SPSS and Excel:

CSDb: Quantify Me 2020 - Pandemus

Data from 1982 to 2020, next year it will be 40 years (!).

Anyway, if you fancy a read and look at 17 pages of figures and tables, grab the PDF:

http://c64.xentax.com/downloads/pandemus_csdb_qm_2020_xentax.pdf

Don't worry, the first pages will provide the highlights.

Here's the low-down of reaffirmed and new insights since the previous two analyses (including DUPLUS):

* 1988 is the golden year in the heyday period (1985-1995)
* Number of releases in CSDb have doubled since 2010
* Slow increase in sceners getting their first credit, new scener appearances dropping recently
* 2020 set a 25 years record with 2831 new releases!
* Increase in annual releases since 2010 prophecy is continuing, but increasingly attributable to old groups
* 1974 is the average year of birth for sceners overall, recent years show a bit younger sceners coming in (1977-1981), trend still aging scene
* Prime times for release uploads were 12:00 PM and 7:00 PM
* Upload time matters: releases uploaded between 10 PM and 4 AM have a higher chance of getting votes and comments (Pro-tip!)


2 figures from the PDF:


Figure 1. Releases per year (and cumulative), comparing the 2010 analysis (CSDb: Quantify Me) with Pandemus (up to 2020).


Figure 2. Increase in releases since 2010 ! 2020 was a record in the 25 years since 1995! Even if we'd subtract the Tiny PETSCI Compo from January 2020. ;-)

Anyway, there's much more data in there. See for yourself, if you feel like it.

Glad you like it! Yes, best scene of 'em all and getting into the second wave! ;-)

Also, useless fact of the day: groups on CSDb come from *64* countries. It is an omen!
