austin-package: Austin

Description Details Author(s)


Austin helps you see what people, usually politicians, do with words. Currently that means how positions on a presumed underlying policy scale are taken by manipulating word frequency information. We try to recover the positions using only this information and some heroic assumptions about language generation.


Currently implemented models are Wordfish (wordfish), and Wordscores (classic.wordscores).
