Abstract

Necessary Condition Analysis (NCA) is an approach and data analysis technique for identifying necessary conditions in datasets. It can complement traditional regression based data analysis as well as methods like QCA (see then NCA website www.erim.nl/nca for a short introduction to NCA).
Details of the method can be found in Dul, J. (2016) Necessary Condition Analysis (NCA). Logic and Methodology of 'Necessary but not Sufficient' causality. Organizational Research Methods 19(1), 10-52 (http://orm.sagepub.com/content/19/1/10), or in Dul, J. (2020), Conducting Necessary Condition Analysis, Sage Publications, ISBN: 9781526460141.
