  1. Hello everyone, I would like to share an article from Ricciardelli et al. published in International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. Title: Canadian Public Safety Personnel and Occupational Stressors: How PSP Interpret Stressors on Duty DOI: https://doi.org/10.3390/ijerph17134736 This study aims to explore the diverse forms of stress among public safety personnel remains sparse. Please feel free to share your opinion. Regards,
  2. Beginner here. I am looking for guidance on visualizing change over time among documents. I have a series of documents over a 30-year period, and I'm trying trace changes in the proportion of different codes over time. I need to be able to apply dates to files, and then summarize those proportions for different years. Any guidance on how to do this? Elsewhere I've seen people using "attributes" for this purpose but I can't figure out how to do that consistently. Instructions or pointing toward existing documents/trainings on this would be helpful. I'm using NVIVO 1.2.
  3. Please see below as I've not yet received a response. Jennimh Casual Member Jennimh Members 0 6 posts Report post Posted July 31 Hi, I have just got the new NVivo 12 and am trying to use the new types of queries. Am I correct in saying that you can only use two attributes for a crosstab query? I have a number of documents which each have 4 attributes. Each attribute has a choice of one,two,or three values. I have then coded some material in each of these documents. What I want to produce is something that looks
  4. This seems like it should be a straight forward problem... When I upload my survey data NVivo will not add all of the closed questions (those I assigned in set up process/wizard) as attributes. I need to assign more columns to be attributes and am struggling to work out how. One assumption I have made is that all closed questions will be made as attributes and appear in list under case classifications - is this true? Questions: Why has NVivo not made all closed questions into attributes? Why have some closed questions and not others been made into attributes? How do
  5. Hi everyone, Our project involves qualitative coding of 6 open-ended questions at the end of a long survey of quantitative fields. There are >200 columns of quantitative data in the spreadsheet that we want to keep for attributes (e.g. demographic info) and to crosstab by later on in matrices. There are hundreds of observations in this dataset, which was imported from an Excel spreadsheet. Trying to code the open-response fields in this large spreadsheet is very laggy and we're looking for better solutions. Would it be possible to keep the quantitative attributes in a separate imp
  6. I am working in Nvivo 11 Pro. I am trying to recode an attribute value, test scores, into ranges of ten. My project contains interviews and a survey of demographics and test scores. I have coded each interview to one case, and the cases also have all of their demographic data and test scores from the survey data. The problem is when I tried to group the test scores into ranges and create a new attribute. NVivo keeps creating copies of all the cases (i.e. Smith (2)). The copy of each case has the attribute with the test score recoded into a range, but all the other attribute values are lis
  7. Hello, I'm trying to use the Explore Source Categorisation Sheet function on my Mac but run into problems every time. When I want to change an attribute in multiple sources, for example, it jumps around after each new entry. So I can't simply go down a column making a change, for example. I have to relocate the correct entry point each time. Often the filter icon at the top of columns disappears and I have to close down and reopen the project in order to get them back. Anybody else having these annoying problems? Anybody worked a way to resolve them? Many thanks
  8. Hi, I have created cases and assigned case classifications, attributes, which have values. I can see how I can look at, and edit and export, a case classification sheet and see which values my cases are assigned at each attribute. What I would like to be able to do is see/export a list of all the attributes I have created and their possible values so that I can review the attributes (and descriptions) and values (and descriptions). Is this possible? Thanks
  9. I'm hoping someone might be able to help me with a database set-up issue in Nvivo. I've been looking around for answers but as yet had no luck. I'm working on a project that analyses a collection of c. 400 conversation transcripts relating to 50 participants. I have imported the conversations as sources and created a source classification for them - importing a classification sheet with attributes including the participants' active within each conversation (in three separate columns to allow for multiple participants). I have also created a case node for each participant and a classificatio
  10. Hi, I have set up a classification sheet with attributes for my survey data. However, to make classifications viable, I need to link the source data to the case nodes or respondents. The only way i know to do this is manually, like illustrated here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2_Fkienpac Is there a way to complete this process automatically? I have so many records and would really like to do this more efficiently. Corine
  11. Hi all, I’m a beginner with NVivo, and over the past couple of weeks I’ve been working at coding a large amount of survey data. The dataset is large, as I’m working with 7,200 respondents, but I’ve divided responses according to question to make things a little simpler. I’ve been having experiencing some problems related to classification sheets and case nodes, and how they interact with the data. I’ve also been having a lot of trouble trying to run matrix coding and group coding queries according to population attributes. Here’s what I’ve done so far: I’ve imported a dataset conta
  12. Hello everyone, I am a quite new NVivo 11 Pro user. I am watching tutorials to learn more about it, however, I am having a hard time to understand classification, attributes, and matrix coding in NVivo 11 for windows. I would like to use the software for my dissertation research. In my research, I am doing university mission statement analysis. Within this context, I would like to pull out data based on degree programs, degree types, and university types. For example, I would like to compare public versus private university mission statements. Likewise, I would like to pull out the dat
  13. Hi, I have a number of interview transcripts from interviewees who often hold more than one steady job each. Using Classficiation & Attributes only seems to allow me to put the interviewee (or source) into one or other classfication or give them one job under a 'Job' attriubute. Am I doing something wrong? What is the best way to label sources like this? Apologies for the basic question - new to NVivo! Chris Using NVivo 10
  14. NVivo issue.docxHi, I work at a health education center doing public health research and I am using NVivo to manage the transcripts from participant interviews. I just started using the program last week. I had no issues importing anything, but my boss wants the information graphed/charted. I am having difficulty doing so. I cannot add in attributes (which is the notification I keep getting. It says I need to add in attributes before I can graph my nodes). The attribute tab (along with many others) is grayed out at the top. We purchased the full version of the software, so I cannot seem t
  15. Hi, I have imported an excel data base which includes quantitative and qualitative data from over 200 respondents (which each row in the excel file indicating one respondent). I imported the data using the wizard and assigned quantitative fields as classifying fields and qualitative as codable text etc I then created a node for each respondent and assigned attribute values (as node classifications) Everything in my classification table looks fine but everytime I run a matrix coding query (or any other query for that matter) and try to use the classification nodes as parameters for
  16. I am coding documents where each document is a case, and where there are many different activities that happened at specific times that need to be coded. Each activity is coded to the relevant node (there are usually multiple activities for each node for each case) and I would like to code the year that the activity occurred (there are usually multiple actives per year for each case). I have considered using attributes to do this. So year =(2000, 2001, ... 2015) as an attribute for EACH activity node. However I am concerned that this will not work because attributes seem to apply to all t
  17. I have created a model to illustrate connections between sources and some nodes. Next I wanted to add in attributes for the sources (gender, area of interest) as a way of visually diving deeper into the data. But while I can select "classifications" or "attributes" option from the Associated Data window, when I click on "Select," while I can see the classifications, they are greyed out and not available. Is the problem that Models just is not the right visualization tool? Or that Models is not set up to show different "layers" of information? Or am I doing something wrong? Thanks i
  18. I’ve got an issue in NVivo around classification sheets for sources vs. nodes for a systematic review. It’s papers basically that are imported as sources (rather than interviews but in effect they can be treated the same) that have then been coded via nodes that I’ve developed. I’ve got a source classification sheet with attributes that highlight key differences in the papers such as location. What I want to do is explore the coding based on the attributes of the papers e.g. china vs. UK. I can do this via a matrix query but it’s not working in the way that I want. I don’t have node classifica
  19. I'm presently making a research about teachers' pedagogy based on evaluation criteria. I'd like to cross-reference teachers' behavior with queries such as : "Teacher takes prerequisites into consideration into his/her lesson plan" : never / rarely / at time / often / frequently To obtain this kind of answer, I browse though various types of documents, among which spreadsheets, but also notes, that I have already coded with some different topics. The problem is that I don't really see where the evaluation scale should be embedded: in the nodes ? as nodes attributes ? as values of attributes ? I
  20. Hi there, I am trying to import a classification sheet, which is an excel document containing all of the demographic information relating to a sample of interviewees, e.g. name, gender, location, age etc. Every time I try to import the document, the attributes for each individual appear as 'unassigned'.. i.e. let's say for 'Laura', her gender, location and age all appear as unassigned within Nvivo, even though all of these things are filled in with text in the excel sheet. I am importing the sheet as: Step 2: Classification type - node classification Step 3: Specifying nodes a
  21. What is the maximum number of attributes that can be added. Specifically, I am trying to figure out what data from a survey I want to assign as an attribute for a "person node" and which data I want to code for.
  22. Hi, I'm working with a large dataset in NVivo10. This is probably a stupid question but rather than foul up the data I thought I would ask... I think I understand how to add attributes to nodes. However my dataset is divided in to 250 interviews, each one a numbered source document in Internals. At the moment generic information about the informant - Age, Gender, Location - is assigned a node. So the "30-50 age" range Node may be linked to sources 124, 155, 147, etc for example. When I run a cluster analysis the informant's biographical data is taken in to account. I was therefore
  23. Is there a way to change the order in which the results appear in Nodes? At present they seem to appear in the order in which they were entered in the program - but I would like them to appear in chronological order (according to the Date attribute in their classification). Thanks
  24. I am working on a project that analyzes university program websites. My Internal Source folder structure is Internals/Websites/University. Each university's folder contains multiple webpages (home page, faq, courses, etc). Some of the universities offer multiple degrees that are part of my study. I originally coded the webpages with multiple nodes (nodes for degree requirements, college located in, department, type of masters, etc), but when trying to work with models and relationships, I couldn't filter the programs as I needed. It was recommended to me that I create classifications instead
  25. Dear community, thanks for you help in advance. I have a problem I cant solve - I want to run a query that uses a single node, and looks only in the selected sources that have a particular attribute. For example I want to answer: What is the 'role of evidence in policymaking' (node) according to 'policymakers' (classification attribute on source). (Of course I have many other queries of this nature to run). So I went through these steps (see screenshot attached) 1) Set up a source classification with various attributes (one of them being 'interviewee category' ) 2) Set the 'attri
