Supplementary notes

According to the source, the ranking is a measure of the following parameters:

  • website mentions;
  • search frequency;
  • technical discussion frequency;
  • current job offers;
  • professional network profiles;
  • social network relevance.
    The source indicates that, according to their criteria, "when system A has twice as large a value in the DB-Engines Ranking as system B, then it is twice as popular when averaged over the individual evaluation criteria... the popularity score is always a relative value, which should be interpreted in comparison with other systems only."
