Children & Happiness

Susanne said, “When looking for example data, I came across an article on children and happiness written by Nattavudh Powdthavee in the journal The Psychologist. Nattavudh reports on several academic studies that repeatedly found a negative correlation between having children and levels of happiness, life satisfaction, marital satisfaction and mental well-being.

Since most people, regardless of their cultural background, religion or geographic location, will at some point ask themselves whether they want to have children, this topic promised to be of interest to many ATLAS.ti users.”

This sample project includes:

  • Think having children will make you happy? by Nattavudh Powdthavee
  • A blog post by Lisa Belkin about this article on the blog ‘Motherlode: Adventures in Parenting’
  • Comments on Belkin’s post from the blog’s readers
  • Comments on a New York Times Magazine article about Powdthavee’s article
  • A document with some findings from ‘happiness’ research
  • Fictional survey data from 24 respondents, including their reasons for having and for not having children and their socio-demographic characteristics
  • An example import from referencing software Mendeley
  • ATLAS.ti project files for Children & Happiness

This sample project is suitable for demonstrating and practicing the full range of ATLAS.ti functions, including coding, analysis, linking and building networks.

Focus Group (sample files)

The files provided consist of three different versions of an excerpt of a focus group transcript. In the different versions, the speaker IDs have been transcribed in different ways.

This sample project includes:

You can use this project to practice the automated coding function for focus group data and see the patterns in how ATLAS.ti recognizes speaker units.
