Creating WordCloud by Demographic with R

In this tutorial, you will learn how to create wordcloud/textcloud by demographic.

Suppose you wish to see the most frequently used keywords mentioned in the open-end comments written by analyst, assistant manager, manager, and president. In this case, the 'Comments' is the variable name where open-end comments are placed, and 'Designation' is the demographic.

R Code For Comparative and Commonality WordCloud
library(tm)
library(wordcloud)

td = read.csv("text1.csv")

level1=paste(as.character(td$Comments[td$Designation==levels(td$Designation)[1]]), collapse=" ")
level2=paste(as.character(td$Comments[td$Designation==levels(td$Designation)[2]]), collapse=" ")
level3=paste(as.character(td$Comments[td$Designation==levels(td$Designation)[3]]), collapse=" ")
level4=paste(as.character(td$Comments[td$Designation==levels(td$Designation)[4]]), collapse=" ")

cloudfn<-function(text)
{  textCorpus<-Corpus(VectorSource(text))
  textTDM<-TermDocumentMatrix(textCorpus,control=list(removePunctuation=TRUE,
  stopwords=c(stopwords('english')),
  removeNumbers=TRUE,tolower=TRUE))
  # creating a data matrix
  tdMatrix <- as.matrix(textTDM)
  sortedMatrix<-sort(rowSums(tdMatrix),decreasing=TRUE)
  cloudFrame<-data.frame(word=names(sortedMatrix),freq=sortedMatrix)

  wcloudcategory<-wordcloud(cloudFrame$word,cloudFrame$freq,colors=brewer.pal(8,"Dark2"),
scale = c(5, 1), rot.per=.25, random.order=TRUE,min.freq=5)

  print(wcloudcategory)
}

  1. Hi Deepanshu,

    Thanks for sharing this valuable code.
    I am trying to use this code, but word cloud is not getting generated, I am receiving below warning as well when code was executed,

    Can you please let me know the why charts are not getting generated?
