Course Overview(讲座概要):The workshop provides a ground-up introduction to Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) and a brief hands-on session to work with the fsQCA software package.

 

QCA is an analytic technique that uses Boolean algebra to implement principles of comparison used by scholars engaged in the qualitative study of macro or micro social phenomena. Typically, qualitatively oriented scholars examine only a few cases at a time, but their analyses are both intensive and integrative. By formalizing the logic of qualitative analysis, QCA makes it possible to bring the logic and empirical intensity of qualitative approaches to studies that embrace more than a handful of cases -- research situations that normally call for the use of variable-oriented, quantitative methods. Boolean methods of logical comparison represent each case as a combination of causal and outcome conditions. These combinations are compared with each other and then logically simplified through a bottom-up process of paired comparison.

本讲座介绍定性比较分析(QCA)的基础概念和方法,并配合演示fsQCA软件的操作。QCA是一种使用布尔代数来比较多个质化研究个案的分析技术。这一分析技术利用布尔代数中的集合运算和逻辑运算方法强化了定性研究中跨案例的比较,因此在社会科学和管理科学中得到了越来越多的应用。国际顶级的社会学、政治学和管理学期刊近年来多有发表使用QCA作为主要分析工具的质化研究论文。
