Program Analytics: Possible Duplicate Tags

The Program Analytics: Possible Duplicate Tags dataset identifies tags used on this site that may be a duplicate or misspelled instance of another tag on this site. This dataset helps determine which tags may need to be cleaned up and provides a link to the assets using the tag for an expedited update process. Routinely use this dataset to maintain a concise and effective tags strategy, thus strengthening the discoverability of the data in your catalog.

Interpreting the Data

Each row in the dataset includes the following information:

The name of the tag in the asset metadata.

The total number of assets with the given tag.

The name of the tag that the given tag my be duplicating.

A measure of how likely the suggested tag is the one the user meant to use based on:
- the popularity of the suggested tag
- how similar the given tag is to the suggested tag using the principles of Levenshtein distance

This means if two tags are similar in their spelling, but one is much more popular than the other, the analysis will suggest using the more popular tag.

A link to a list of all the assets on this site with the given tag.

A link to a list of all the assets on this site with the suggested tag.
