You are now here: datademocracy > Decreto 34/2020: why this webapp

Aims: see the link above (the main page explaining the datademocracy concept), i.e. to "democratize access to data".

Each "case" will contain a different "shape", or "source"- in some cases with data analysis and visualizations.

Whenever there will an interim database to "distill" information from the source, it will be on Github, to enable further reuses without the need to reprocess the source data (sources will be always acknowledged and data tranformations and formatting documented).

Case 5: Decreto Rilancio Retrieving the articles associated with a specific search tag, for the most frequent keywords within the 264 pages and 266 articles of an Italian Government decree.

On 2020-05-19 the Italian Government released "Decreto Rilancio", a government decree containing 55bln EUR of new resources to support kick-starting the economy during Phase 2 of the COVID-19 epidemic; as the impacts and ensuing regulations that will derive from it will be a political, social, economic baseline, I decided to do something more than just read it, as part of my business and technological update during the lockdown.

On 2020-05-20 released a dataset containing the word frequencies, document structure, and further information (e.g. why the decree is named either "55bln" or "150bln") on my Kaggle.com profile

On 2020-07-17, Legge 77/2020, converting the Government Decree into a law (with "enhancements"), was released, and therefore I prepared a new webapp

Due to the update, the database associated with this application now links to the updated text only of the articles that were within the Government Decree 34/2020, and this webapp is here mainly for historical value (i.e. the tag cloud is the one originally extracted from the Government Decree, not from the updated version, but you can see via the links in the results of your search the text of each article as released on 2020-07-17).
