QDA Miner 3.2

QDA Miner is an easy-to-use qualitative data analysis software package for coding textual data, annotating, retrieving and reviewing coded data and documents. The program can manage complex projects involving large numbers of documents combined with numerical and categorical information. QDA Miner also provides a wide range of exploratory tools to identify patterns in codings and relationships between assigned codes and other numerical or categorical properties.

This new version introduces several useful features, including:

  • Virtual grouping of codes for flexible analysis of hierarchical coding.
  • New bubble charts and stacked bar charts for displaying relationships between codings and variables.
  • Improved data management features (e.g., incremental importation).
  • Integrated statistical routines for assessing the uni-variate and bi-variate distributions of numerical and categorical variables.
  • New intuitive text-retrieval tools for easier data inspection.
  • Improved integration with WordStat for in-depth analysis of query results.
  • Several speed optimizations for large projects involving numerous cases as well as very large documents.

More detailed information on these new features can be found at:
