-DIN (Difference index) is a so called effect-size metric, i.e. a measure designed((see Fidler, M. - Cvrček, V.: {{:​pojmy:​josl-separat.pdf|A Data-Driven Analysis of Reader Viewpoints: Reconstructing the Historical Reader Using Keyword Analysis}})) for the purpose of quantifying the relevance ​of a difference ​between values.

-When comparing values (e.g. frequencies of words) we should be aware not only of the statistical significance but also whether the difference under consideration is actually relevant for the description. Statistical significance can be obtained ​by several tests (e.g. chi2 test, Fisher'​s test or log-likelihood test).((It is unimportant ​here that these tests can also be employed as association measures for the extraction of collocations)) Significance is usually expressed as a p-value, i.e. the probability that the difference ​is caused by chance or variation within the data.+When comparing values (e.g. frequencies of words) we should be aware not only of the statistical significancebut also whether the difference under consideration is actually relevant for the description.

For units which display a statistically significant difference, the **DIN** value is calculated ​in the following way:
  
 $$DIN = 100 \times \frac{RelFq(Ttxt) - RelFq(RefC)}{RelFq(Ttxt) + RelFq(RefC)}$$ $$DIN = 100 \times \frac{RelFq(Ttxt) - RelFq(RefC)}{RelFq(Ttxt) + RelFq(RefC)}$$
  
-where $RelFq(Ttxt)is the relative frequency of the phenomenon in the analyzed text (target text) and $RelFq(RefC)is the relative frequency of the same phenomenon in the reference corpus. ​+where //RelFq(Ttxt)// is the relative frequency of the phenomenon in the analyzed text (target text) and //RelFq(RefC)// is the relative frequency of the same phenomenon in the reference corpus. ​
  
-The formula takes into account the difference between relative frequencies (numerator) in relation to the frequency level of the items under comparison (denominator). This reference frequency level can be represented by their average value, as can be seen in following formula which is equivalent ​with the above (the coefficient changed from 100 to 50 in order to keep the DIN values within the desired range):+The formula takes into account the difference between relative frequencies (numerator) in relation to the frequency level of the items under comparison (denominator).

   * a value of -100 means that the given phenomenon does not occur in the analyzed text and is only in the reference corpus (therefore the word is not prominent in the analyzed text)   * a value of -100 means that the given phenomenon does not occur in the analyzed text and is only in the reference corpus (therefore the word is not prominent in the analyzed text)
   * a value of 0 means that the given phenomenon has approximately the same relative frequency in the analyzed text and in the reference corpus (therefore the word is not prominent in the analyzed text)   * a value of 0 means that the given phenomenon has approximately the same relative frequency in the analyzed text and in the reference corpus (therefore the word is not prominent in the analyzed text)
-  * a value of 100 means that the word occurs only in the analyzed text (it can therefore be a very prominent word ((In such cases it is important to keep in mind that the complete absence of a word from a reference corpus is unusual and special attention should be paid to it; a word might not occur in a reference corpus e.g. because it is very rare, cited from another language etc.)))+  * a value of 100 means that the word occurs only in the analyzed text (it can therefore be a very prominent word ((In such cases it is important to keep in mind that the complete absence of a word from a reference corpus is unusual and special attention should be paid to it; a word might not occur in a reference corpus e.g. because it is very rare, cited from another languageetc.)))
  
-In texts of up to 20 thousand words in length and for analysis of [[en:​pojmy:​word|word forms]], DIN values in the 75-100 range can be considered ​to be of interest ​and they indicate that the unit is probably prominent and can be used as a basis for the interpretation of the entire text.+In texts of up to 20 thousand words in length and for the analysis of [[en:​pojmy:​word|word forms]], DIN values in the 75-100 range may be considered of interest, as they indicate that the unit is probably prominent and can be used as a basis for the interpretation of the entire text.
  
-Furthermore,​ the KWords application offers a whole range of additional information for work with keywords. Apart from the list of keywords and their values it is the data dispersion graph (showing the status of the individual keywords in the text), a graph of so-called keyword links, i.e. relations between keywords in the text and also a concordance of keywords ​for an analysis of their immediate ​context.+Furthermore,​ the KWords application offers a whole range of additional information for work with keywords.

 The KWords application was also designed for creating analyses of temporal (or other) data series. If the user inputs more texts into the application (the maximum amount is 20), the so-called **multi-analysis** regime is activated. This regime analyzes all the inserted texts and the results of the individual analyses are compared based on the DIN. The KWords application was also designed for creating analyses of temporal (or other) data series.
