This article elucidates the methodological issues around reanalysis, by comparing the treatment of a corpus of 52 interviews in two European regions by two researchers. The primary data were initially analysed by the principal investigator using a method similar to content analysis and with the help of NVivo 12. It was then reanalysed by a second researcher who did not participate in the interview campaign, using a more inductive method of qualitative discourse analysis assisted by Atlas-ti 8. The overarching conclusion confirms the usefulness of combining these methods of analysis. The article is a contribution to the literature on the use of CAQDAS in the context of the reuse of data.
