VisibleThread undertakes an ongoing research program into the use of clear language in Internet communications. In March 2017, VisibleThread undertook a study of 20 Canadian Government websites split evenly between Canadian municipalities and provincial governments (along with the Federal website). These websites cover the span of country, from Montreal to the Yukon territory. The analysis measured up to 100 pages on each website, across these four dimensions:
- Readability – How readable is the content?
- Passive Language – Active Language communicates clearly. What proportion of sentences is passive?
- Long Sentences – What proportion of all sentences are too long?
- Word Complexity Density – How many complex, hard-to understand words does the content contain?
