A relatively heavy month for deposits, this November 2011.  The number of SPSS files deposited is really impressive, and look to be the result of a small number of deposits, but with many data files.  Quite a bit of Excel too; more than SAS and Stata combined. 

We also have the usually fishy looking items that have been auto-detected as C or C++ source code, and which are actually text/plain (I suspect).  If the setups for a stat package contain the right types of comments in the right places, file is easy to fool.

The dBase and ArcView files are an interesting add to this month's listing.  We don't see too many of those.
