Qualitative data or open-ended responses can provide organizations with valuable information to make decisions about programs and services. However, working with qualitative data typically requires a lot of time and resources to successfully implement. So how does your organization ensure that you are collecting the best information you can? What kinds of questions should you ask? What do you do with all the data that you collect?

This interactive lecture will provide organizations with an overview of best practices, offer tips and strategies, and outline how to analyze qualitative data.
