1. Downloads over the last month can be accessed by 

. ssc hot, n(1400)

You can do less scanning if you also specify the author. 

2. The top so many programs are listed in Kit Baum's postings to this list, usually at the beginning of each month. 

3. Then you can get a download history starting with Googling REPEC, but note the caveats. 


lists data on _authors_ for last 3 months. 

Would the reviewer feel any differently if you had written the program? Would the reviewer object to R where everything is user-written?

Subject: st: Responding to a Reviewer's Concern about an Ado

A reviewer of a proposed publication of mine is questioning the use of a 
user-written program that I utilized in the analysis. I'm not sure if 
the reviewer is familiar with Stata and ados.

This particular ado is the primary tool utilized in a Sage publication 
regarding the subject at hand (which I will point out to the editor and 
through him to the reviewer.) I'm wondering, how does one find the 
number of downloads of the ado through ssc. I know there are other ways 
that users can obtain ados but I suspect ssc downloads would give me a 
decent number of people using the program. Any other ideas would be 
appreciated. In advance. Thanks.
