Abstract

This paper presents the results of Big Data text analytics as part of the Third Wave Study provided by Dell EMC External Research and Academic Alliances. The study refers to sociological approach to API, where the keywords count via Google API and Yandex API measures the global «ecosystem of changes», identifies different levels of social stress and adaptation in various countries, records a portrait of a world crisis with its specifics. A new countries’ ranking (Index of Intrastate Stability) is proposed and analyzed in the paper. As the ranking suggests, among 47 countries considered in the study Luxembourg is ranked first as a country with the most stable intrastate social situation. Iran is ranked last for being a country with high risks of intrastate destabilization. Russia holds 38th ranking with the USA at the 21st position. Egypt, South Korea, Denmark, United Kingdom, Sweden and Switzerland have negative markers related to extreme social tensions caused by migration crisis.
