What can be done in sentiment analysis

ibau Sentiment Analysis | June 2020:
Can you see a positive development again?

With regard to deferral or resignation tendencies There has been a polarization among public clients. The proportion of respondents who say that these tendencies have increased has increased by 5.5 percent. The proportion of respondents who state that these tendencies have tended to decrease has even increased by 10.4 percentage points. Obviously an indication that the authorities are positioned differently in their processing infrastructure. At the same time, however, it also shows the opposite assessment of the medium-term development of the municipal financial situation. A good quarter of the respondents thus seem to believe in a positive development.

If there is a tendency to postpone or withdraw commercial builders are already showing a significant relaxation from. Commercial builders, who generally approach challenges in a more solution-oriented manner, have obviously regained confidence in the future. For example, there was an increase of 8.4 percent in the information on the reduction of postponement or resignation tendencies and at the same time a decrease of 2.2 percent in the information on increased postponement or resignation tendencies.

Also at private builders seem to be returning to everyday life. This can be attributed to the fact that in the last few weeks it has become clearer which industries will have to struggle with the consequences of the pandemic in the long term and which will find their way back to their former strength more quickly. Since this knowledge reduces the degree of uncertainty, it is again easier for private builders to plan their personal future more reliably. There was a decrease of 3.8 percent in the information on the rather increased postponement or resignation tendencies and an increase of 1.2 percent in the information on the rather fewer postponement or resignation tendencies.

This development can be interpreted as a signal that even with private builders - albeit much more hesitantly than with commercial builders - a kind of confidence and a habituation effect to life with the crisis seem to be setting in.
