Analysing and presenting qualitative data

Br Dent J. 2008 Apr 26;204(8):429-32. doi: 10.1038/sj.bdj.2008.292.


This paper provides a pragmatic approach to analysing qualitative data, using actual data from a qualitative dental public health study for demonstration purposes. The paper also critically explores how computers can be used to facilitate this process, the debate about the verification (validation) of qualitative analyses and how to write up and present qualitative research studies.
