|Subject: ||SAS TextMiner or WordStat|
I am currently looking for a text mining software to analyze responses to
open-ended questions. I was told that SPSS's TextSmart should be avoided.
The best software I have found so far is WordStat from Provalis Research. I
tried their demo and the product is quite powerful and very cheap ( see
www.simstat.com/wordstat.htm ). But I learned that SAS recently released a
text mining software (TextMiner). How does this program compares with
WordStat? How good is TextMiner to analyze responses to open-ended
questions, emails or other types of documents?
