Qualitative content analysis - the pattern's the limit!

When I started writing this blog, I was planning to add a post every other week - or every week, even. To write a few lines - surely this fits in anywhere, anytime - doesn't it? But I suppose that the human capacity for self-deception is endless and that academics are no exception... And this is why it has been three weeks (three weeks??) since the last post. But I will keep it up, even if at longer intervals.

Today I want to focus not so much on what QCA can, as on what it cannot do.…

Bonferroni correcting lots of correlations

Someone posed me this question:



Some of my research, if not all of it (:-S) will use multiple correlations. I'm now only considering those correlations that are less than .001. However, having looked at bonferroni corrections today - testing 49 correlations require an alpha level of something lower than 0.001. So essentially meaning that correlations have to be significant at .000. Am I correct on this? The calculator that I am using from the…

SPSS is not dead

This blog was published recently showing that the use of R continues to grow in academia. One of the graphs (Figure 1) showed citations (using google scholar) of different statistical packages in academic papers (to which I have added annotations).…

Qualitative content analysis - combining categories

Truth to tell, I had not exactly planned to write another blog entry today. Easter is almost here - time to walk outside in the sunshine, sip a coffee and watch people walking by, chat with friends, maybe paint an egg or two... But: The sky is grey, it is freezing cold, and the last thing I would want to do is sit outside. Much better to finish telling you about how to assess symbol visibility using qualitative content analysis - before that first post has slipped everybody's mind, including…

One-Tailed Tests

I’ve been thinking about writing a blog on one-tailed tests for a while. The reason is that one of the changes I’m making in my re-write of DSUS4 is to alter the way I talk about one-tailed tests. You might wonder why I would want to alter something like that – surely if it was good enough for the third edition then it’s good enough for the fourth? Textbook writing is quite an interesting process because when I wrote the first edition, I was very much younger, and to some extent the content…
