Nvivo.user posted a topic in NVivo for MacHello, I am working with long PDF documents to conduct a textual analysis and I want to make specific references. It would be really helpful if the 'reference' page of each 'node' displayed the page numbers of each bit of coded text and not only the percentage of the text it covers and the number of the reference. Cheers, Youri
Hello I'm trying to get a simple excel file that contains all of my nodes and reference counts but this simple task seems overly complicated and the Report Wizard is not giving me what I want, nothing close in fact. This guide is also not helpful: http://help-nv10.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/create_reports_using_the_report_wizard.htm#Use_the_Report_Wizard Why does the Export/list nodes option not do this? That function exports only the first level node title and nothing else, what purpose does that serve? I just want to see all the things I've coded thus far in a list so I can share with my advisor when we review the work. How is this done?
I have some survey data in which one of the questions we asked people about how their projects are funded. I have coded the column of this data by different nodes to represent the different types of funding using text search (over 2000 responses I had to automate it!) - grants, contracts, donations, etc. The responses are open-ended so sometimes they mention the word grant or funding multiple times. An example is: "We received funding from ABC and also were funded by XYZ" If I code for text search fund*, this response generates two references, but it is from one respondent/ case. How can I do the query/ coding so that it only comes up as one reference (for the whole response)? Is there any way to merge them so that it can be seen as just one reference? Hope I'm making sense and would be grateful for some help!! Thanks
Hi I have been using Nvivo for a short period of time. I have survey data which I have coded it with Nvivo. However, I have got bid of problem when calculating percentages. I will try to explain it as detailed as possible below. 1) I have got survey, which involved 237 children from various schools. 2) In every question I have got different response rates. 92 children responded to the question in the example I am going to use to present problem. 3) 26 out of 92 children gave irrelevant answers. Therefore, 66 children gave code-able answers. 4) I have coded the answers from those 66 children and I have coded 112 references in total. 5) I have coded those 112 references into 23 different categories and I have classified those categories into 3 main thematically categories. At the end it looks like this. Uploaded with ImageShack.us I would like to calculate the percentages of those main categories. My problem starts here. I struggle to find way to calculate that. First of all I would not calculate like number of references X100 / Number of total respondents (92) because more than one answer from one children might have coded in the child categories. For instance to be able to calculate percentage of management issues, I would not say 52X100/92=56% of the children. Because same children might have coded more than one time in the child notes, therefore 56% would not be the correct percentage of children. When I analyse the demographics 52 references in the management issues category recorded from 44 children, 31 references in the health and safety category recorded from 25 children and 29 references in the personal reasons category recorded from 27 children. I would not use these number of children (44-25-27) to calculate percentages because second and third most mentioned categories would change places and it would not be correct. I would not calculate that using number of responses because I do not know how many responses we got. I know 66 children gave relevant responds but some of those mentioned only one issue, while some others mentioned 2 or 3 issues. I would be grateful, enlighten me about what I should do about issue?
