Qualitative Comparative Analysis

An extensive set of functions to perform Qualitative Comparative Analysis: crisp sets ('csQCA'), temporal ('tQCA'), multi-value ('mvQCA') and fuzzy sets ('fsQCA'), using a GUI - graphical user interface. 'QCA' is a methodology that bridges the qualitative and quantitative divide in social science research. It uses a Boolean algorithm that results in a minimal causal combination that explains a given phenomenon.
