Interactive Visualizations and Analyses
Accessing data from Wordbank
The apps above allow analyses of normative growth in vocabulary size and individual item trajectories. They also allow for download of several forms of tabular data. These apps cover some of the most common use cases for Wordbank data but not all.
In addition to these apps, you can access Wordbank data using the wordbankr R package. There is a data access tutorial for wordbankr available here. The R package is the most flexible way to work with data from the database.
If you are interested in item- and group-related analyses of the Wordbank data that are not available through the Shiny apps, it may also be helpful to identify the relevant analysis in the Wordbank book and look at the code for those analyses.
Periodic snapshots of the Wordbank database are available for download. For instructions on how to access them, see here.
