Visualizing the Differences Between Inaugural Addresses

by Joshua New
Presidential Inaugurations

Google News Lab and data visualization firm Tulp Interactive have created a series of data visualizations called “Inaugurate” that breaks down the inaugural speeches of 12 presidents, including Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump, and compares their length, subject matter, emotions, and other factors. In the “society” comparison, for example, users can see how frequently different presidents mentioned terms such as “wealth,” “crime,” and “common good,” and in each visualization, users can compare the search popularity of different significant terms in each speech.

Take a look.
