MAXQDA Analytics Pro – Introducing ‘Stats’ Module
MAXQDA Analytics Pro equips you with a large range of tools for statistical analysis. Seamlessly quantify your qualitative data and enrich your analysis with evidence and plausibility. Statistically analyze your qualitative data in MAXQDA or import and connect your data with data sets in the Excel or SPSS format.
Use the Stats module to run statistical calculations with your MAXQDA project data. Statistically analyze code frequencies across documents and create new data groups in your qualitative project based on statistical results.
Include all parts for your data or use activation to limit the analysis to specific documents and codes. You can also work with Excel or SPSS data sets – just like you would in any other statistic software package.
Create basic charts to compare frequency and percentages for variables or codes. Frequency tables are interactive – remove and merge columns or rows with automatic recalculation of percentages. Create customizable charts and diagrams for your results and copy to output viewer or directly to your reports and presentations.
Calculate descriptive statistics including mean, standard deviation, variance, quartiles, median and range.
There is a wide variety of methods to explore relationships between two or more variables. Crosstabs are among the elementary ones that no statistical software can live without: easy to customize and insightful not only for statisticians. Highlight options make the interpretation of results easy and fast.
If you are looking for something more advanced, you can also compare effects of a factor on different groups with the analysis of variance (ANOVA).
One of the most fundamental statistical procedures to explore the connections within your data is to check for correlations. The Stats module enables you to calculate the two most commonly used correlation coefficients with a few mouse clicks: Pearsons r and Spearmans Rho.
Scale, Compute & Recode
Creating your own scale can be a great way to properly measure the dimensions that you are most interested in. Calculate Cronbachs Alpha to check reliability. Save scales as new variables and calculate the sum or mean of the item values.
Create new variables by computing or recoding existing variable values.
