All you are identifying is the list of languages which appear on resumes.
In my experience, people put a lot of things on their resumes that do not
reflect reality.  Not only that, no one has yet defined 'most popular' -
if someone has a million plus lines of applications in some particular
scripting languages, is that more popular than some other language which
has several hundred applications each of which are a few hundred lines long?
Or is the shorter more numerous applications more frequent?

Just because people use SQL a lot, does that mean that it is popular - or
just the primary language available to use?  Perhaps the majority of people
hate it?  Is it still popular if that were the case?
