Sisällönanalyysi Content analysis

Sisällönanalyysi on Pirkko Anttilan (1999) mukaan alunperin luonteeltaan kvalitatiivinen menetelmä. Sen avulla on tavoitteena kuvata jonkin aineiston jakautumista luokkiin ja kategorioihin, ilmaisten sisällönolemusta. Sisällönanalyysillä on merkitystä myös kvalitatiivisena menetelmänä.
