COBOL is #39 [1]. Java and C# dominate the enterprise these days.

Doesn't this nicely prove how worthless such surveys are? Go ask the same question to the mainframe community, and you will get a completely different ranking. Go ask the same question to the app programmer community, and you will get a completely different ranking.

Indeed. The IEEE Spectrum metrics are derived from sources such as
Google search/trends, Twitter, Reddit, Stack Overflow, Dice etc. The
mainframe community is a relatively small part of the IT industry these
days so traditional mainframe languages like COBOL won't be highly ranked.

Keep in mind that the article says that as it is IEEE doing the survey, and IEEE's primary membership is Electrical Engineers, the survey is primarily the languages that EE's would be using.
