ULTIMO RILASCIO: Febbraio 2024

WordStat is a flexible and easy-to-use text analysis software – whether you need text mining tools for fast extraction of themes and trends, or careful and precise measurement with state-of-the-art quantitative content analysis tools. WordStat can be used by anyone who needs to quickly extract and analyse information from large amounts of documents. Provalis Research content analysis and text mining software can be used in many applications such as analysis of open-ended responses, business intelligence, content analysis of news coverage, fraud detection and more. WordStat‘s seamless integration with SimStat – our statistical data analysis tool – QDA Miner – our qualitative data analysis software – and Stata – the comprehensive statistical software from StataCorp, gives you unprecedented flexibility for analyzing text and relating its content to structured information, including numerical and categorical data.

 

WHAT IT IS USED FOR? 

WordStat can be used by anyone who needs to quickly extract and analyze information from large amounts of documents. Our content analysis and text mining software is used for:

  • Directly import text and quantitative data from social media, online survey platforms, reference management tools
  • Content analysis of open-ended responses, interview or focus group transcripts
  • Business intelligence and competitive web sites analysis
  • Information extraction and knowledge discovery from incident reports, customer complaints
  • Content analysis of news coverage or scientific literature
  • Automatic tagging and classification of documents
  • Fraud detection, authorship attribution, patent analysis
  • Taxonomy development and validation

 

WORDSTAT CONTENT ANALYSIS DICTIONARIES

Many WordStat users develop their own content analysis dictionaries. Such dictionaries are usually customized to the type of data being analyzed and to the variables that need to be measured. However, having access to existing dictionaries from others authors may be useful in many ways. It allows the analyst to easily assess other dimensions and quickly get a different perspective on his text data. It also makes his results comparable to those published in other studies. Such dictionaries may also represent a great source of inspiration for developing one’s own dictionary.

 

WORDSTAT SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT KIT (SDK)

The WordStat software development kit (SDK) provides a solution , allowing models developed with the WordStat desktop tool to be used in other applications written in other computer languages such as C++, Delphi, C#, VB.Net and so on.

 

An example of such integration would be the application of a categorization model on a company data collection system of customer feedback in order to automatically measure references to specific topics and to classify those feedbacks as either positive, negative or neutral.

 

With WordStat, Data Analysts can quickly extract valuable text analytics results from large collections of documents such as customer feedback, emails, open-ended responses, interview transcripts, incident reports, patents, legal documents, blogs, websites, and more. Here is a list of content analysis and text mining features of WordStat:

EXPLORE DOCUMENT CONTENT USING TEXT MINING 

In a few seconds, explore the content of large amounts of unstructured data and extract insightful information:

  • Extract the most frequent words, phrases, expressions.
  • Quickly extract themes using clustering or 2D and 3D multidimensional scaling on either words or phrases.
  • Easily identify all keywords that co-occur with a target keyword by using the Proximity Plot.
  • Explore relationships among words or concepts with the Link Analysis feature.
  • Fine-tune the analysis by applying the keyword co-occurrence criterion (within a case, a sentence, a paragraph, a window of n words, a user-defined segment) as well as clustering methods (first and second-order proximity, choice of similarity measures).
  • Explore the similarity between concepts or documents using hierarchical clustering, multidimensional scaling, link analysis, and proximity plot.

USE TOPIC MODELING TO EXTRACT THE MOST SALIENT TOPICS 

Get a quick overview of the most salient topics from very large text collections using state-of-the-art automatic topic extraction by applying a combination of natural language processing and statistical analysis (NNMF or factor analysis) not only on words but also on phrases and related words (including misspellings).

 

While in hierarchical cluster analysis, a word may only appear in one cluster, topic modeling may result in a word being associated with more than one topic, a characteristic that more realistically represents the polysemous nature of some words as well as the multiplicity of contexts of word usages.

 

WordStat: topic modeling

EXPLORE CONNECTIONS 

Explore connections among words or concepts using a network graph. Detect underlying patterns and structures of co-occurrences using three layout types: multidimensional scaling, a force-based graph, and a circular layout.

 

Graphs are interactive and may be used to explore relationships and to retrieve text segments associated with specific connections.

 

WordStat: link analysis

RELATE TEXT WITH STRUCTURED DATA 

Explore relationships between unstructured text and structured data:

  • Identify temporal trends, differences between subgroups, or assess relationships with ratings or other kinds of categorical or numerical data with statistical and graphical tools (deviation table, correspondence analysis, heatmaps, bubble charts, etc.).
  • Assess the relationship between word occurrence and nominal or ordinal variables using different association measures: Chi-square, Likelihood ratio, Tau-a, Tau-b, Tau-c, symmetric Somers’ D, asymmetric Somers’ Dxy and Dyx, Gamma, Person’s R, Spearman’s Rho.

OPTIMIZED INITIAL TEXT PROCESSING

In Version 2024, WordStat has significantly enhanced the efficiency of the initial reading and processing of data files, resulting in expedited results. This improvement is particularly pronounced for projects comprising a large number of small documents, with the first operation now completing up to three times faster than in previous versions.

 

APPLY AUTOMATIC DOCUMENT CLASSIFICATION MODELS TO PROJECT DATA

WordStat 2024 now allows the application of automatic document classification models for data transformation. Found on the Data page, this new feature facilitates the storage of predicted classes in a variable. Users can also opt to store the probability of the predicted class or probabilities of all classes.

 

IMPROVED LANGUAGE DETECTION

WordStat 2024 introduces a new language identification classification model that can identify 37 languages accurately (most languages using Latin, Arabic or Cyrillic characters). It’s measured accuracy is above 98% on very small text segments (five words or less) and above 99.5% on longer documents. The classification model may be applied to create a language variable in a multilingual project, allowing one to filter and analyze different languages separately.

 

FILTER KWIC TABLES ON UP TO THREE CRITERIA

A new filter option on the Keyword-in-Context page may now be used to filter the results of the KWIC table on any selected independent variables or on words or phrases appearing before or after the key item.

 

SELECT OR EXCLUDE PARAGRAPHS USING TEXT FILTERS

An advanced preprocessing feature enabled users to filter in or out paragraphs containing specific words or phrases. Multiple items can be specified and may be preceded or ended with an asterisk to represent zero, one, or several additional characters. One may also select specific numbers of paragraphs before or after the matching paragraph in order to include or exclude the surrounding context. This feature is especially useful to quickly focus the text analysis on specific topics in large datasets without the need to create a new dataset. When analyzing interview or focus group transcripts, it may also be used to remove interviewer’s questions or the moderator’s interventions if their interventions are clearly indicated by specific key strings.

 

 

SAVE TEXT RETRIEVAL RESULTS TO A NEW PROJECT FILE

When using the keyword retrieval function, a new button now allows one to save the obtained table as a new project file. This includes preserving options from the current project, such as pre- and post-processing settings, and the link to the categorization model. This feature proves especially handy for in-depth analysis of text segments on a specific topic or meeting specific conditions.

 

COPY GRAPHICS’ DATA TO THE CLIPBOARD IN TEXT FORMAT

It is now possible to save data utilized for creating various graphics to the clipboard in tab-delimited format. One may then seamlessly paste the data in another application to generate tables or custom charts.

 

MORE WAYS TO ADD ITEMS TO THE CATEGORIZATION DICTIONARY

Right clicking on items of a 2D correspondence plot or of a deviation table now allows one to add those items to an existing or a new category. This option is disabled or hidden when the selected item is already present in the current categorization model or refers to a content category.

 

FILTERING AND HIGHLIGHTING OF SUGGESTED PHRASES.

New phrase extraction options have been added to remove or highlight (bold + italic) phrases already in the current categorization dictionary. Additionally, a filtering mechanism has been introduced, allowing users to set a minimum frequency to narrow down suggested phrases.
