NCA can also be applied to longitudinal and time-series data. We made an animation to show that the necessity can change over time. Using Worldbank data we show that a country's economic prosperity (GDP per capita) is necessary for a country's Life expectancy (years) and that the necessity changes between 1960 and 2018. See the animation.
Necessary Condition Analysis
Necessary Condition Analysis (NCA) is an emerging 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.

We just finished a series of well attended NCA webinars on “Introduction to NCA” and “NCA software demonstration”. If you are interested in learning more about the NCA logic and method, the registration for our Online Summer Course is now open.
The summer course is hosted by the Erasmus Research Institute of Management of Erasmus University Rotterdam. It is a hands-on course consisting of mandatory readings and three lectures between 21st and 25th June. Participants will gain an in-depth understanding of the logic of necessary conditions, and why these are important for social science and practice. The end-result is a well-developed extended abstract that contains all main elements for a journal publication.
To register for this Online Summer Course, organized together with the Erasmus Research Institute of Management (ERIM) in Rotterdam, please fill in the following form: https://erasmusuniversity.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_5u48IlGUYAin7oO (direct access in the title of this item.
