      Abstract

      For much qualitative research analysis of social reality requires that we understand the ‘symbolic
      world’ of those we study, that is, the meanings and interpretations that people apply to their
      experiences. The researcher may start with some understanding of the phenomena, even before
      finishing the collection of data, but this understanding expands during the course of the project
      by continually checking data against interpretations until we are satisfied we have a full grasp of
      the phenomena.
