What is a .CHN file?

The file extension .CHN is associated with a type of data file specifically used by older versions of a software called Ethnograph, which is developed by Qualis Research Associates. Ethnograph is a tool used for qualitative data analysis, which means it helps researchers examine non-numerical data like interviews, open-ended survey responses, articles, social media content, and more, to identify patterns, themes, and insights.

A .CHN file contains the necessary data that Ethnograph uses to perform these analyses. This data could include coded segments of text, groupings of similar types of responses, and other relevant information that researchers need to organize and interpret qualitative data.

To open a .CHN file, you would need to use the Ethnograph software from Qualis Research Associates. Since it is compatible with older versions of the software, users with the latest Ethnograph might need to check compatibility or use an older version of the software to access the data in a .CHN file.
