I have undertaken 2 different sets of data collection and in the process of analysing set one. I want to start analysis of the second set but am not sure how to do this? Do I open a new project completely or do I continue with the same nodes but distinguish the second set in a different way? Help please.15th August 2013 at 9:51 am #2953QDATRAINING AdminMember
This really goes to your analytical strategy. Technically, there is no problem coding to the same nodes and having common and unique codes for both data sets. Or, initially separating them using folders and bringing them together later in the analysis. Nor is there any problem with having separate demographics. However, what you definitely don’t want to do is start another project file. We only need one database for the project regardless of how many sub-sets of data it contains. This is fundamental to optimising your data.
