Q Methodology is a research method used in psychology and in social sciences to study people’s “subjectivity”—that is, their viewpoint. The name “Q” comes from the form of factor analysis that is used to analyze the data. The data for Q factor analysis come from a series of “Q sorts” performed by one or more subjects. A Q sort is a ranking of variables—typically presented as statements printed on small cards—according to some “condition of instruction. The sample of statements for a Q sort is drawn from and claimed to be representative of a “concourse”—the sum of all things people say or think about the issue being investigated. Commonly Q methodologists use a structured sampling approach in order to try and represent the full breadth of the concourse. One salient difference between Q and other social science research methodologies, such as surveys, is that it typically uses many fewer subjects.
