Seeing Like the Fed: Interactive Clustergram

This diagram accompanies Fligstein, Stuart Brundage, and Schultz in American Sociological Review 2017. It shows the continuity in word assignments between topics as the number of topics changes (x-axis). A line indicates that the relatedness of two topics (line width) is above the threshold. The slider below can be used to adjust the threshold. Hovering over a topic will bring up a mini-graph displaying the temporal evolution of that topic.
