Abstract

Ethnographic data is often regarded solely as qualitative data. Very often, however, quantitative techniques can serve to illuminate patterns and themes in the ethnographic data which would be ordinarily missed. In this paper a formal data collection technique, the Successive Pile Sort, is introduced. Its application to ethnographic data of battered women and its representation through the quantitative technique of multidimensional scaling is discussed.
