software for categorizing constructs
Wed, 21 Apr 1999 15:00:50 +0000

Hello fellow PCP-ers

I have now completed nearly 40 x2-3 hour interviews for my main
survey on multicultural responses to common building materials .

While I'm sorting out the grids, I've decided to try and categorize the
constructs. I have four groups to sort (10 interviews each) with
between 15-60 constructs per interview . So I'm getting about
150-600 constructs to sort per group!

Does anyone know of any nice software that could help me by sorting
constructs in terms of key words searches, key phrase searches etc.?

How do folk usually "sort" their elicited constructs into categories?

All helpful tips gratefully received as usual......

Best wishes
