AbstractYou have collected data or sourced it in documents. Now that you have it, you need to analyse it in order to produce findings. Much of what we offer in the way of practicalities in this chapter could be characterised as strategies for analysis, rather than shoulds (cf Richardson, 1990: 32). There are, however, some shoulds, such as the need to be sysematic and organised, and to present evidence to back up your findings. We make this clear when we discuss these processes.
