Qualitative data analysis: Analytic hierarchy

06/01/2018    hoangthuphuong   PHD Journey


The analytic hierarchy refers to the process through which qualitative 'findings' are built from the original raw data. It is described as a form of conceptual scaffolding within which the structure of the analysis is formed. The process is iterative and thus constant movement up and down the hierarchy is needed. The analytic process requires three forms of activity: data management in which the raw data are reviewed, labelled, sorted and synthesised; descriptive accounts in which the analyst makes use of the ordered data to identifying key dimensions, map the range and diversity of each phenomenon and develop classifications and typologies; and explanatory accounts in which the analyst builds explanations about why the data take the forms that are found and presented.

Approaches to collecting qualitative data
Approaches to collecting qualitative data
Approaches to collecting qualitative data can be divided into two very broad groups: * naturally occurring data * generate data through the interventions of the research
Qualitative data analysis: Analysing group data

The principles, processes and outputs described above relate to all forms of qualitative analysis concerned with interpreting meaning, irrespective of the type of data collection methods used. But there are some additional features that need to be considered when data have been collected through group discussions rather than individual interviews. We briefly consider these below.

Unlike quantitative analysis, there are no clearly agreed rules or procedures for analysing qualitative data. Approaches to analysis vary in terms of basic epistemological assumptions about the nature of qualitative enquiry and the status of researchers' accounts .
