Counting Items versus Measuring Space in Content Analysis.
Al-Enad, Abdulrahman H.
Journalism Quarterly, v68 n4 p657-62 Win 1991
Compares coverage of five subjects in eight daily newspapers, employing both factor analysis and Pearson correlations. Computes correlation coefficients among newspapers by using (1) size of individual stories as items; and (2) space measurements by categories. Finds that different ways of coding the same raw data produced different results. (SR)
