GCU Exercise as An Important Component of The Health Analysis

The purpose of this assignment is to practice interpreting qualitative interview transcripts by recognizing patterns. This is called coding and it is an important skillset for public health professionals.

For this assignment, code the “Interview Transcript” document. Use the “Coding Qualitative Data Worksheet” to document your results from the “Interview Transcript” and to provide a summary of your findings.

Coding Qualitative Data Worksheet
Part 1
Refer to the patterns, or codes, you identified on the “Interview Transcript.” In the table below, list five the codes found in the data.
For each code, write a 50-100 word summary to describe what the code represents.
Code Name
Summary Describing Code
Five participants mentioned exercise as an important component of their health.
Participants discussed the importance of exercise, willingness to exercise more,
and barriers to exercise. As an example, one participant stated “Exercise is
extremely important to me. I’ve worked hard to establish exercising as a part of
my daily routine. I go on walks every evening with my family.”

Interview Transcript
The transcript records responses from five people who were asked the question “How satisfied
are you with your health?” Their responses are documented below. Review the responses and
notate five patterns that emerge within the data. This can be done through highlighting or
underlining. Once you have identified the patterns, complete the “Coding Qualitative Data
Participant 1:
I feel as if I am very healthy and I know that I have a firm background on what being healthy
means because of my interest in nutrition and exercise. I always try to eat better and make the
right choices and exercise on a regular basis. I really think that those two components contribute
highly to health. But, health also means emotionally, mentally, and even spiritually. I feel like
my spiritual life really contributes to the rest of my health because I take care of my body
because God tells us to in the Bible and everything else falls into place.
Participant 2:
I am in good shape. I play sports all the time and am physically fit to compete at high levels. I
don’t smoke or drink. I have a swimmer’s build. I try to eat as healthy as possible. But the
negatives are that I would like to build more muscle. I am kind of twirpy and would like to be
Participant 3:
I think I’m pretty okay. Just some minor aches in some areas, but I think I can live. I never had
major surgery, or even any problem, with my health. I’m also very paranoid, in that way. If I see
someone in bad shape, I worry. What if? That is the question. What if it’s me? I think that’s all
I’m really concerned with is my health. Another thing is smoking and drinking. I don’t do either
of them. So I get really mad when people do it in front of me, because of secondhand smoke. I
don’t want to die of cancer, because of some stupid person who wants to kill me too due to their
cigarettes. Most of the time, I think I forget that I could. So I really don’t make them stop. But I
when I see people on TV and movies dying of lung cancer, I really get upset. Another thing I feel
bad about is my own health, in keeping a good shape. I get mad at people on TV with great
bodies, and I get mad because I know I can do it too. I mean good body meaning healthy and
muscular. I’m not talking about bodybuilders or even supermodels. I mean people who keep
themselves in shape. I realize, this when I’m walking or running and I can’t keep up, like I used
to. I became very lazy.
Participant 4:
I’ve gained too much weight over the last several years and I don’t seem to be doing anything to
get rid of it. I have high cholesterol levels, but I don’t attempt to change my eating habits. I’d like
to jolt myself into becoming more physically active, so I can lose the weight and feel more
energetic. I keep saying I’m going to do something about it, soon.

Participant 5:
I am relatively happy with my current health. I feel that I have a decent looking physique but of
course I would like it enhanced. I see all these guys in underwear ads and in clubs with these
pumped up bodies and all I can think is “Damn, I wish I looked like that!” If anything, to make
both myself and my girlfriend happier. But improving my health is something I know I can
achieve. It is very easy to eat better and to work out more. You just have to do it and that’s the
hardest part of it all.
