Next follows some partial study of the influence of Estonian, Finnish and Latvian computer scientists in terms of how much they have been cited. It started off as a table for Estonians only, to which I added Latvians (since I know many Latvians personally, and wanted to get some comparative material). Later, when I moved to Finland, I also decided to add Finns.
These tables are based on a freely accessible source, Scholar. It finds most of the online papers and also includes many papers that are not available on-line (at least not free), and then processes them automatically. I have not used ISI: ISI only includes some papers (they ignore ACM and IEEE), and is very difficult to use. For example, as of 01.03.08, I had 76 ISI citations if I only take into account citations to my papers that are in ISI, while at the same time I had 765 citations according to Google Scholar. Current numbers are obviously larger in both cases (about 350 in ISI and 1800 in Google Scholar, May 2012), but there is still a large gap.
Disclaimer: I do not have any connections with Google. All data is given on ``as is'' basis.
For final comparison, according to the CIA World Factbook, the number of population in Estonia, Finland and Latvia is 1.43, 5.17 and 2.40 millions, resp. Note that I have considered a person x to be Estonian/Finnish/Latvian, if (s)he is either born in the corresponding country, or has the corresponding nationality, or has been working in this country for a considerable period of time. (So, Margus Veanes is considered to be Estonian, Hartmanis is considered to be Latvian and Rissanen is considered to be Finnish. In particular, I have added myself to both Finnish and Estonian tables.)

Scholar included to the system on 01.05.05. (Before that I used Citeseer.) All numbers on this page come from Scholar only.
Certainly it is interesting to know how different statistics (like citation indeces) evolve. Currently I have only produced a backup for 2001.
