If we want to quantify the results of our coding in QDA, we have to think about  two aspects first: scope and quantity. The scope forces us to consider what length our text segments should have (words, sentence, paragraph), whereas the quantity indicates what we are allowed to do with these segments later in analysis (numerical, boolean, non-numerical analysis). To quantify codes properly, this must be taken into consideration long before we complete our coding. Quantification is a tempting w...
