    primary document matrix


    I am interested in looking at not only the frequency of
    particular codes within a primary document, but within
    subsections of a primary document. For example I may have
    subsections A, B, and C in a primary document text. Section
    A includes the responses to a particular interview question
    for participants 1-10 in my study. Section B includes
    responses from participants 11-20, and so on...
    Is there a way that I can mark or code segments A, B and C
    of the text so that I can create a report of the frequency
    of codes within each section?
    Thanks.
    Kim

    There is no neat way of doing this as with the codes-primary
    documents-table. This is something I and others have commented on and hope
    is changed in Atlas 5. But what you can do is code you subsections using
    codes such as "A" "B" "C" etc. then the individual codes could be, say,
    A/democracy, A/dictatorship etc. and you would have a running count in
    your code list of how many times, say, A/democracy is used versus the total
    uses of A.

    Alternatively, if you don't want to have specific codes for sections, you
    could just use the normal codes, such as "democracy" or "dictatorship." Then
    you could use the Query tool to do a search for, say, "all uses of
    'democracy" WITHIN 'A'". Then you can simply count how many hits you get.
    This is more laborious than a ready made matrix since you have to manually
    search for each combination, but it gives the same result.

    If you have to do more sophisticated frequencies and crosstabs, you could
    use SPSS. Here you would want to have an overall code such as "section" for
    each of your sections which is then broken into "a" "b" "c" etc. Then in
    SPSS you would aggregate the data using "section" as the break variable.
    This would give you a data set in which each section is a case and you could
    see what and how frequently different codes occur with in it.

    best, DS.

    Hi,

    I've been using Atlas.ti in the past, but recently switched over to a Mac
    laptop and am considering running atlas.ti under VirtualPC. Has anyone had
    any experiences with this setup?

    Thanks,
    John

    </color>Why not just split up the document into three?

    Hi John

    I'm running ATLASti on a Mac with VirtualPC. It works fine. But i
    tuned up to 120 MB RAM.
    The Systemsoftware is MACOS 8.6.

    Another fine, no problems, except in attempting to download an upgrade off the
    web. However, a Zip drive should work, and the difficulty could easily have
    been my inexperience with web downloads. - Joanie
