Summarizing Economic Bulletin Documents with TF-IDF


A key strength of NLP (natural language processing) is being able to process large amounts of texts and then summarise them to extract meaningful insights. In this example, a selection of economic bulletins in PDF format from 2018 to 2019 are analysed in order to gauge economic sentiment. The bulletins in question are sourced from the European Central Bank website. As a disclaimer, the below examples are used solely to illustrate the use of natural language processing techniques for educational purposes. This is not intended as a formal economic summary in any business context.
