SEMANTIC ANALYSIS

The results of our semantic analysis are shown below using the website's language.

They are the main concepts covered by il.gov.

Each concept has a confidence score. The higher it is, the more important the topic is relative to the page.

Topics
Website Confidence: 72% Arrow up

A website is a collection of related web pages, including multimedia content, typically identified with a common domain name, and published on at least one web server.

A website may be accessible via a public Internet Protocol (IP) network, such as the Internet, or a private local area network (LAN), by referencing a uniform resource locator (URL) that identifies the site.

Web portal Confidence: 70% Arrow up

A Web portal is most often a specially designed web site that brings information together from diverse sources in a uniform way.

Usually, each information source gets its dedicated area on the page for displaying information (a portlet); often, the user can configure which ones to display.

Variants of portals include mashups and intranet "dashboards" for executives and managers.

The extent to which content is displayed in a "uniform way" may depend on the intended user and the intended purpose, as well as the diversity of the content.

Very often design emphasis is on a certain "metaphor" for configuring and customizing the presentation of the content and the chosen implementation framework and/or code libraries.

In addition, the role of the user in an organization may determine which content can be added to the portal or deleted from the portal configuration.

Nonprofit organization Confidence: 68% Arrow up

A nonprofit organization (also known as a non-business entity) is an organization whose purpose is something other than making a profit.

A nonprofit organization is often dedicated to furthering a particular social cause or advocating for a particular point of view.

In economic terms, a nonprofit organization uses its surplus revenues to further achieve its purpose or mission, rather than distributing its surplus income to the organization's shareholders (or equivalents) as profit or dividends.

This is known as the non-distribution constraint.

The decision to adopt a nonprofit legal structure is one that will often have taxation implications, particularly where the nonprofit seeks income tax exemption, charitable status and so on.

Business Confidence: 68% Arrow up

A business (also known as an enterprise, a company or a firm) is an organizational entity involved in the provision of goods and services to consumers.

Businesses serve as a form of economic activity, and are prevalent in capitalist economies, where most of them are privately owned and provide goods and services allocated through a market to consumers and customers in exchange for other goods, services, money, or other forms of exchange that hold intrinsic economic value.

Businesses may also be social non-profit enterprises or state-owned public enterprises operated by governments with specific social and economic objectives.

A business owned by multiple private individuals may form as an incorporated company or jointly organise as a partnership.

Countries have different laws that may ascribe different rights to the various business entities.
