One major takeaway is that the bugs/line are the same regardless of the language used. This means that languages that enable more expression in fewer lines of code result in fewer bugs for the same functionality.

Is the data to support this conclusion freely available on the web somewhere?

My impression is that Python is considered the easiest language to use. If it has no more bugs per line than a statically typed program that seems to suggest that non-speed-critical work should be done in Python.
