I have had several responses to my question about "Ethnograph",a
qualitative analysis software package for the PC platform. A couple of you
have requested access to those responses, so here is a brief synopsis:

"There is no version of Ethnograph for the Mac and there are no plans to
develop one."

"I think there's an Ethnograph review in some edition of the CAM (Cultural
Anthropology Methods) Newsletter; sorry, don't have the number.
Also, Ethnogrpah and other similar programs are evaluated in an article
in the appendix of The Handbook of Qualitative Research from Sage."

Thanks for the information. So far the best Mac analysis software I have
evaluated is Hyperqual. It's inexpensive and quite powerful as to the
kinds of searches and organization strategies it will allow one to perform.

I'd also appreciate any more opinions on analysis software. Thanks again.
