Provalis Research is pleased to announce the maintenance release of QDA Miner 4.1.8 and WordStat 6.1.20. Those new versions can now import and export Stata files versions 8 to 13 making it easy for Stata users to explore and analyze small and large collections of text data, move back and forth between quantitative and qualitative analysis, and easily look at relationships between any numerical, categorical or date variables, and text stored in either Stata string variables (limited to 244 up to 2045 characters) or in the new StrL variable introduced in Stata 13 (up to 2 billion characters).
Both QDA Miner (version 4.1.8) and WordStat (version 6.1.20) allow one to export full projects, result tables, as well as coding statistics to Stata files, allowing users to quickly transform unstructured text into structured data in order to perform further statistical analysis.
Upgrade is free to existing users of QDA Miner 4 and WordStat 6 and can be obtained from here.
