Statistical Textual Analysis: How nice!
October 23, 2009 § Leave a comment
Textual statistics methods were developped more than two decades ago combining differents disciplines : linguitics, discourse analysis, statistics, information technology, and survey processing.
They have been applied to a wide variety of topics (in history, marketing, sociology, etc.) and different objects: open questions, interview analysis, written transcripts, documents, novels…
Two main approaches can be identified:
* French approach : following the seminal work of Benzécri,
* CAQDAS : computer aided qualitative data analysis systems.
The book entitled “Analyse statistiques des données textuelles en Sciences de Gestion” I coordinated with D. Peyrat-Guillard welcomes explanotory as well as illustrative contributions by: M. Reinert, P. Marchand, S. Labbé & P. Marchand, D. Peyrat-Guillard, A. Helme-Guizon & M.L. Gavard-Perret, C. Gauzente & C. Gonzalez. It is prefaced by L. Lebart and postfaced by J. Rojot.
We hope this method to spread within the management research community.
