Irish Government Clarity Index exploring how well Irish departments and agencies communicate through their websites.
VisibleThread has created a comparative index to measure just how well the Irish Government has upheld this mandate.
The index is of 26 Irish Government agency websites based on clarity of written content.
We 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 – Complex words make web pages hard to understand.
