Those stats are based on all skill keywords, not just languages
though,  programming as a keyword is only 20% or something on it, so
you could extropolate that all the programming languages could be
multipiled by 3 or 4 times.

They are also non exclusive - the 15.1% of jobs listing SQL will
include a large share of all other languages listed below it.
