What is a reference (Count/number)? NVivo 8)


Recommended Posts

Hello. How can I explain what a reference is in NVivo? How does it relate to the number/count of sources? Does the reference refer to the NUMBER OF TIMES that a source (or portions of a source) is listed anywhere in the project, e.g., case, memo, etc.?

Tamara,

 

When viewing the number of references in the Sources List View, this is a count of the number of selections within that source that have been coded to any node. The same selection coded to two different nodes would be counted as two references.
