Abstract
In this paper we develop a method for measuring transparency as a factor of document similarities between the executive and operational branches of the Swedish Riksbank. We do this by usage of NLTK within the Python-framework. We also propose a ray of different methods for textual analysis, such that they are able to capture the elements of communication that we are interested in.
