This paper explains that qualitative research involves the use of qualitative data, such as interviews, documents and participant observation data, to understand and explain social phenomena. The paper then describes the qualitative research process reported in D. Cote-Arsenault and D. Morrison-Beedy's 2001 article "Women's Voices Reflecting Changed Expectations for Pregnancy after Perinatal Loss" in the "Journal of Nursing Scholarship". The paper states that the data found in this study is consistent with previous studies conducted in Europe, which indicated that pregnancy losses of all types have a harmful effect on women's health. The author faults the study in that its sample was only Caucasian women and no men.

From the Paper:

"In analyzing the data that was collected, an exhaustive description was used. The data analysis started during collection and continued throughout the study using the same steps outlined by Colaizzi (1978). The transcripts of each session were taken and analyzed then combined together to form one data set. It was then reviewed by 11 of the participants and then returned with comments. All relevant new data were incorporated into the final description of the phenomenon. This collection and analysis was an appropriate procedure for qualitative research."
