Manual and Automatic Coding Consolidation

When performing extensive manual coding, autocoding and merging of codes, one may end up with some identical codes assigned more than once to the exact same text segment or to partially overlapping text segments. The CONSOLIDATE command allows one to replace codes assigned by the same coder to overlapping text segments by a single coded segment. This tutorial video shows how the automatic code consolidation option in QDA Miner qualitative software, will automatically merge adjacent or overlapping codes into larger ones.
