Text data represents a large portion of collected data, and can be difficult to leverage into insights. We built a process to empirically analyze text responses using open source software and a custom data engineering process.


The State of Iowa conducted multiple business surveys as the COVID-19 pandemic broke out globally. The survey data has been used for decision and policymaking and a team was formed to conduct various text analysis and data mining to analyze the results to ensure the appropriate policies were enacted.

This project was in collaboration with Dan Bumblauskas, Amy Igou & Cole Wetzel.
