I am currently undertaking a Thesis research paper where I am seeking to explore and understand how views on a certain topic have changed over time as reported in the media.

I am going through a large quantity of news articles, coding them and then by grouping the codes into code groups and then into “views”, I would like to be able to somehow analyse how the prevalence of a certain “view” has changed over time.

For example, “Exploitation” might be a view, which in 2006 accounted for 80% of the views being presented in the media, then in 2007, it was down slightly to 75%, and then dramatically down to only 30% in 2008 and then only 1% from 2012 onwards.

How might I be able to use Nvivo to produce a graph or data that I could then use to graph something like this?

Hope someone can help!
