QDA Miner 6 offers higher levels of computer-assistance for qualitative coding, analysis, and report writing than any other qualitative data analysis software on the market today.

QDA Miner is an easy-to-use qualitative data analysis software package for coding, annotating, retrieving and analyzing small and large collections of documents and images. The QDA Miner qualitative data analysis tools may be used to analyze interview or focus group transcripts, legal documents, journal articles, speeches, even entire books, as well as drawings, photographs, paintings, and other types of visual documents.

Why QDA Miner?

More qualitative data analysis features and tools than comparable products:

  • The Keyword Retrieval tool can search in a single pass for hundreds of keywords and key phrases related to the same idea or concept, allowing you to locate all references to a single topic, no matter which words were used to express this idea.
  • The Section Retrieval tool is ideal to automatically retrieve and tags sections in structured documents, allowing you, for example, to quickly attach codes, to turn in interview or focus group transcripts, or code a specific section in a collection of reports sharing the same structure.
  • The Query by Example tool can be trained to retrieve text segments having similar meaning to the examples you feed in. It will expand and refine its search based on the relevance feedback you provide.
  • The Cluster Extraction tool will group similar sentences or paragraphs into clusters and allow you to code these using a flexible drag-and-drop editor. It is very useful to quickly code large amounts of short text items such as open-ended responses, Twitter feeds and customer feedback. A real timesaver!
  • The Code Similarity search will retrieve all text segments similar those that have already been coded, allowing you to identify sentences or phrases you may have missed. It may also be used to speed up the coding of partially coded projects. One may even search for items similar to codes defined in previous coded projects.
  • The Date and Location extraction tool is ideal to quickly locate and tag references to events or to geographic locations. One may then attach specific codes, geotags or time tags to the retrieved items.

Why use QDA Miner 6 to analyse your unstructured data?


Import Word, Excel, HTML, XML, SPSS, Stata, NVivo, PDFs, as well as images. Connect and directly import from social media, emails, web survey platforms, reference management tools, LexisNexis, and Factiva.

Locate Events Using GIS Mapping and Time Tagging

Associate geographic and time coordinates to text segments. Retrieve coded data, based on time and location, and plot events on timelines and maps.

Analyze, Visualize, Explore

Explore data, and identify patterns and trends using integrated statistical and visualization tools such as word cloud, clustering, multidimensional scaling, correspondence analysis, or quotation matrix.

Achieve Faster Text Coding

Achieve faster and more reliable coding with more than seven text search tools including keyword search, section retrieval, a powerful query-by-example search that learns from the user, and a unique cluster extraction that automatically groups similar text segments.

Extract Coded Text Segments

Use flexible coding retrieval tools for extracting coded segments associated with specific codes or code patterns and identifying coding co-occurrences, coding sequences, and assessing relationships between coding and numerical or categorical properties.

Integrated Geocoding Service

Integrated geocoding to transform references to cities, states, provinces, countries, postal codes, and IP addresses into geographical coordinates. The GISViewer mapping module allows you to create data point maps, distribution maps and heat maps.

Store Results in Report Manager

Store queries and analysis results, tables, graphs, notes, and quotes in a single location. This is ideal for organizing findings, and quickly generating reports.

Track Changes

Keep track of every project access, coding operation, transformation, query, and analysis performed with the assistance of the powerful command log tool. Useful to document the qualitative analysis process and to supervise teamwork.

Perform On-Screen Text Coding

Code and annotate text segments and images using features that provide greater flexibility and ease of use.

Unique Teamwork Support

Get unparalleled teamwork support with multiuser settings, a coding merge feature, annotations, an inter-rater agreement module for assessing coding reliability, and use the command log function to review code entries.

Annotate and Link Qualitative Data

Flexible memo and hyperlink features to annotate documents and images and connect various pieces of qualitative evidence by creating links to other coded segments, cases, documents, files, or web sites.
