Additional resources for Analyzing Qualitative Data
As I re-read through the notes, I added to the subheadings and categories. Paragraph by paragraph was bracketed. In many instances there was overlap. For example, a passage on kinship alliances could also be relevant to work partnerships. A case-study of a move from a camp could overlap with the topic of a police eviction. Details of a group discussion would involve individuals from several family or domestic units. The entire piece would be relevant to each unit.
