Are you working on a Qualitative research project?

The table below compares various Qualitative Data Analysis Software (QDAS) programs.

All of the programs listed allow you to analyze text (or video) by placing chunks into “codes” which capture the main idea or thought. Then you can search for codes you have created, and can organize the codes in a hierarchy (for example, codes "I was happy" and "I was thrilled" can both be placed in a parent code called "elation").
