Table 1 Stages in Framework Analysis [26]

From: Factors influencing sedentary behaviours after stroke: findings from qualitative observations and interviews with stroke survivors and their caregivers

1) Familiarisation with the data (reading, and re-reading field-notes, transcripts, memos)
2) Identifying a thematic framework (researchers jointly developing a set of codes organised into categories to manage and organise the data)
3) Indexing (systematically applying the thematic framework to the whole data set)
4) Charting (entering data into Framework matrices: spreadsheets containing cells into which summarised data are entered by codes (columns) and cases (rows))
5) Mapping and interpretation (interpretive concepts or propositions describing or explaining aspects of the data are the final output of the analysis)
