Changes to HASSET

HASSET structural review

We are undertaking a structural review of HASSET.

From September 2017 until July 2019 work has focused on the reconstruction of the following hierarchies:

  • CRIME AND SECURITY
  • ENERGY
  • FOOD AND NUTRITION
  • HEALTH
  • LAW AND JUSTICE
  • POLITICS
  • SPORT
  • WELL-BEING (SOCIETY)

From August 2019 until November 2019 work has continued on the following hierarchies:

  • AGRICULTURE
  • BUSINESS
  • COMMUNICATION
  • DEMOGRAPHY
  • INDUSTRY AND MANUFACTURING
  • LEISURE AND TOURISM
  • MILITARY AND DEFENCE
  • PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE
  • SOCIAL WELFARE
  • SOCIETY

We reduced the number of top terms (i.e. terms with no Broader Term) and removed orphan terms (i.e. terms with no Broader or Narrower Term), in order to prepare for a projected browse facility and to simplify current thesaurus browsing.
