  1. Coding

    Coding refers to an analytical process in which data, in both quantitative form or qualitative are categorised to facilitate analysis. Coding means the transformation of data into a form understandable by computer software. The classification of information is an important step in preparation of data for computer processing with statistical software. One code should apply to only one category and categories should be comprehensive. There should be clear guidelines for coders so that code is consistent. Some studies will employ multiple coders working independently on the same data. This minimizes the chance of errors from coding and increases the reliability of data.
