The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease, founded in 1874 and the world's oldest independent scientific monthly in the field of human behavior, appears to be the first medical journal to publish a study that uses NCA. The published paper uses NCA to study motivation in people with schizophrenia.
Necessary Condition Analysis
Necessary Condition Analysis (NCA) is a new approach and data analysis technique for identifying necessary (but not sufficient) conditions in data sets. It can complement traditional regression based data analysis as well as methods like QCA. NCA provides very relevant insights for practice. Recent methodological and substantive publications show that NCA can combine rigor and relevance.
