Numbers on Graphs and Analysis
It is possible to display the number of results directly on your graphs and analysis. This will help you to see the details more clearly.
To display the numbers on the graph, use the options and select "display number of results":
What do the numbers refer to?
In this example, I have used the DCF to create my analysis. I first looked for articles containing the query fees OR surcharge.
Then I used a list of credit card companies to run the analysis.
At the bottom of the graph I can see 67372 results. This number is the total number of news stories from the DCF that contain my keywords fees or surcharge. The total number of pieces of information analysed will be displayed at the bottom of the graph.
On the bars inside the graph I can see 430 results for Mastercard. This is the number of articles out of the 67372 results that also contain the query I have for Mastercard.
You will notice that the number of total results (67372) is greater than the sum of the information for Mastercard + American Express + Visa + Diner'sClub (430 + 425 + 389 + 9). This is because some of the articles among the 67372 do not contain the queries for the credit cards. As a result they are not included in the graph.
Sometimes you will find that the total of the results in the parts of the graph add to more than the total number of results. In this example, 5 pieces of information were analysed - I can see 5 results at the bottom of the graph.
When I add the numbers on the bars, I get 14 (5 + 5 + 3 + 1).
This is because 5 of the results also contain the query for American Express. The same 5 results also include the query for Mastercard. However, only 3 of the 5 match the Visa query.
