First founded in 2005 at the University of Pittsburgh, the Qualitative Data Analysis Program (QDAP) was the creation of Dr. Stuart Shulman. QDAP personnel coded text from a wide variety of sources. Original material for content analysis included in-depth interviews, open-ended survey answers, field notes, transcripts from focus groups or Web logs (blogs), e-mails, Web site content, results from database searches (such as LexisNexis™), congressional testimony or other historical texts, and a host of other unstructured but digitized text data sets.
