Overview of word clouds

Word clouds provide a quick way to see what responses are most common. The more common a term is, the larger it appears in the cloud. You can create word clouds from any type of variable. They are most often used for displaying open-ended literal responses to see how often particular words appear in comments.

Sample word cloud

Word clouds allow you to display responses at different sizes, colours and opacity according to their frequency. The least frequent responses are displayed in the smallest and most transparent text.

It is possible to combine variables into a single word cloud.

You can break your word cloud down by the responses to another variable. For example, this shows food orders by gender.
