Multiple data types - quantification

10.06.2021, 15:55

Hello,

I have multiple data types - interviews, diaries, photos. They are in separate document sets. Some themes are found in all three types of data, and participants may have mentioned a theme in only one or all document.

I want to quantify how many participants mentioned a theme in all the different documents. How do I do that without counting the same participant two or three times? If they mentioned a theme in more than one document, I only want it to count as one mention). I also don't want to combine all the documents into one (they are different formats).

Thanks!

Hello,

thank you for this interesting question!

Thank you for contacting us with this interesting question!

Here is a solution that you can try:
- Create one Document Set for each participant
- Add all documents to this Document Set
- Use the Code Matrix Browser and select "Set" under Column
- Now use the display option "Binarize view" (the 0-1 icon)
- Make sure that also the SUMs are displayed

Now it should be easy to tell based on the sums how many people (Sets) mentioned one category.

I hope this helps! Best regards on behalf of the MAXQDA support team,

Thanks! I'll give this a try.

I have 100 participants and the documents are already in separate document groups. Any tips for quickly creating 100 document sets? :)

Hello,

If you have one document group per participant you can also use "group" as the column instead.

For quickly creating several sets it would probably be fastest with "Activate document via variable". In the menu you have the option "New Set" which allows you to quickly create sets without having to close the window.
