Hamlet II: Textual quantitative analysis

Text analysis

Studies in social sciences often make use of quantitative text analysis to analyse trends in data, particularly primary data. Quantitative analyses of textual data help in validation statistics, co-occurrences of words/texts, textual trends, and frequency statistics. A number of tools have been developed to help in textual analyses of text based data. Hamlet II is one of the most efficient and user-friendly ones.

Basics of Hamlet II for quantitative text analysis


Hamlet II helps in quantitative analysis of text. It offers a multidimensional scaling approach. It also serves as computer assisted text analysis. It shows the differences of the basis of types of analyses, and ease of usage. This software allows a range of statistical models such as Jaccard coefficient, Sokal’s matching coefficient, and van Eck and Waltman’s proximity, PINDIS, INDSCAL, MDPREF, MRSCAL and MINISSA. Hamlet II also uses critical algorithms for statistical analysis of text. It is compatible with .doc, .docx, .txt, .csv, .pdf and other common file types.
