Strategies for Interpreting Qualitative Data

"Presented in a clear, understandable format, this book provides a broad . . . comparative starting point for researchers considering various techniques for interpreting data."


Analyzing and interpreting the mounds of notes you have accumulated from the field can be daunting tasks. Sometimes it′s unclear which analytic strategy will best answer the questions that first drew you into the field in the first place. This brief volume outlines four key interpreting strategies for dealing with qualitative data: ethnomethodology, semiotics, dramaturgical analysis, and deconstruction. The author examines the strengths and weaknesses of each strategy and shows you when to use them. In addition, each technique is applied to a single data set to illustrate potential differences in results. Strategies for Interpreting Qualitative Data is an ideal tool for teaching students to analyze and interpret qualitative data. Professionals involved in qualitative methods, sociology, anthropology, and nursing will find assistance in this volume.
