I have used MAXQDA as my primary recommended qualitative data analysis software program since 2005, when I began facilitating Spanish-language projects and MAXQDA was the only program with full documentation in Spanish. Since that time, I have taught MAXQDA in a wide variety of settings including education, government, and non-profit organizations.

What I like about MAXQDA is its ease of use (a low learning curve), the depth and breadth of its classifiaction and analysis functions, and the possibiltiy of conducting different kinds of qualitative or texts analysis simultaneously.

The ability to easily import string and numeric selection variables provides an invaluable tool for relating complementary quantitative and qualitative research strategies. This and other features have made MAXQDA particularly well-suited for integrating ethnographic and epidemiological methods for a cultural epidemiology of various health problems.
