How do I create a Random Sample?

To create a Random Sample, go to the Projects menu and click on Random Sample button. The next step is to specify your sample:

🔷 give it a name,

🔷 select the source project,

🔷 select a date range,

🔷 define a percentage of the sample (it can be up to 20%).

Wait for the system to generate the sample. Once it’s ready, you’ll see it as a normal project in the Projects, Mentions and Analysis views.

Note that the sample is multilayered, and takes into consideration the original data set’s attributes (such as sources, mentions in time, gender, sentiment, etc.).



Be careful when ignoring mentions in the Random Sample, because the system will replace it with another statement.
