Manually Assigning Codes to Text Segments

The simplest and most obvious method of qualitatively code textual information is to read each document in a project and manually assign existing codes in a codebook to a selected segment of text. QDA Miner allows you to easily attach a code to a block of text that may be as small as a single character but that will more often consist of a few words, or one or more sentences or paragraphs. A code may even be assigned to an entire document. This video tutorial shows the various ways to apply codes to text segment in QDA Miner qualitative research software.
