Introduction to Qualitative Comparative Analysis (Southwestern Social Science Association 2022)

Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk 123 Losoya Street, San Antonio, TX

Qualitative comparative analysis (QCA) uses Boolean algebra to offer an alternative to conventional statistical techniques for analyzing empirical data. While large-N representative applications of QCA are increasingly popular, QCA is especially useful for identifying and understanding cross-case patterns in small- and medium-N projects with data collected using qualitative and/or mixed methods. Fundamentally a pattern-matching technique … Continue reading Introduction to Qualitative Comparative Analysis (Southwestern Social Science Association 2022)

Summer School in Social Research Methods: Introduction to Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA)

Radboud University Houtlaan 4, Nijmegen

This course introduces students to the nuts and bolts of Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA), an innovative set-theoretic technique that allows for comparisons of small, intermediate or large numbers of cases in order to identify necessary and/or sufficient conditions for an outcome. It is an attractive method for scholars who seek to model causally complex patterns … Continue reading Summer School in Social Research Methods: Introduction to Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA)

NCA-guided QCA

Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University Burgemeester Oudlaan 50, Rotterdam, PA

Scholars frequently understand causation in terms of necessity and sufficiency.  However, the ontological relationship between necessary and sufficient conditions has not been fully explored.  We argue that sufficiency can only be correctly understood by taking necessity into context and develop a corresponding methodology.  NCA-guided QCA integrates Necessary Condition Analysis (Dul 2016, 2020) and Qualitative Comparative … Continue reading NCA-guided QCA
