Visualizing Term Eigenvector Prominence in a Corporate Social Responsibility Context
AbstractIn this study we develop a simplified technique for helping researchers and analysts visualize the alternative prominence of term eigenvectors obtained after exploring term associations (Term Clusters) while conducting Text Data Mining on a collection to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) reports. The collection analyzed is comprised of CSR reports produced by 7 US firms (Citi, Coca-Cola, Exxon-Mobil, General Motors, Intel, McDonald’s and Microsoft) in 2004, 2008 and 2012. The analysis is performed by year in order to discern how the prominence of term eigenvectors has evolved for each firm and for different CSR topics. Results indicate that term eigenvectors maintain their prominence when CSR topics are related to the core business of the firm in question.
