Analysis of qualitative data can be significantly enhanced through use of computer software which provides tools to assist the process. NVivo, from QSR International, provides tools that allow researchers to work in diverse and effective ways with their data:

  • managing a variety of text and visual data sources and ideas and information derived from those sources using coding and linking strategies;
  • searching data to locate passages of interest or explore expressions of interest;
  • recording developing ideas and understanding of the data in memos and models;querying the data, and coding based on the data, to explore patterns or test emerging ideas;
  • linking qualitative with quantitative data.
