Qualitative research is all about exploring issues, understanding phenomena and answering questions. Unlike quantitative research, which uses numbers to arrive at conclusions, qualitative research uses unstructured information – like field notes, interview transcripts and survey responses. Our software lets you manage, shape and make sense of this information quickly and easily. Different from quantitative research which deals with numbers, qualitative research seeks out the 'why', not the 'how' of its topic. Focus groups, in-depth interviews, content analysis and semiotics are among the many approaches used in qualitative research to gain insight into people's attitudes, behaviors, value systems, concerns, motivations, aspirations, culture or lifestyles. The information that's collected and analyzed - such as case notes and interview transcripts - is unstructured and often text-based. This information can be messy and time consuming to analyze using manual methods. When faced with transcripts, emails, notes, diaries and audio or visual material - finding themes and extracting meaning can be a daunting task.

Qualitative versus Quantitative Research  Site Reviews(1)
Qualitative researchers: reject the idea that social sciences (such as education and training) can be studied with the same methods as the natural or physical sciences; feel that human behavior is always bound to the context in which it occurs; therefore, behavior must be studied holistically, in context, rather than being manipulated; employ an "insider's" perspective; this makes qualitative research an intensely personal and subjective style of research. Quantitative researchers: argues that both the natural and social sciences strive for testable and confirmable theories that explain phenomena by showing how they are derived from theoretical assumptions; reduce social reality to variables in the same manner as physical reality; attempt to tightly control the variable in question to see how other variables are influenced.

The Qualitative Report  Site Reviews(2)
An online journal dedicated to qualitative research since 1990 Abstract: This study addresses ways Khmer refugee elders utilize traditional herbal medicine with Western biomedicine in the treatment and prevention of illnesses. Methods include semi-structured and informal interviews with elders and family members, semi-structured interviews with local health care providers and Khmer physicians, and participant observation of everyday life and actions specific to health beliefs and behaviors. Data reveal a reliance on traditional medical ideology for understanding and treating illnesses. Utilizing a traditional ideology, Khmer elders rely heavily on traditional treatments and use Western biomedicine as supplements or adjuncts to traditional preventive and curative practices. This research has important implications for health care providers who treat SEA elders, especially for diet and treatment of chronic illnesses often associated with aging populations.
