Censorship Scores for Subreddits


Procedure:

Chosen subreddits are being analyzed daily at midnight (Pacific Time) with the Python Reddit API Wrapper (PRAW) module. The source code below goes through the last one thousand comments for each moderator and counts the amount of comments with the word "removed". This count is used to calculate a censorship score for each subreddit. In addition, the average censorship score per catagory is estimated and displayed. Visualizations are done through Google Data Studio.
