Abstract

Public opinions toward social concerns are worth to be noticed for decision makers to undertake any policies and their outcomes. Social psychologists usually undertake a series of investigations to access the interaction underneath the common thinking or actions. The design and statistic processing of the questionnaires always require a lot of manpower. In this paper, two technologies, denoted as CorMap and iView, for qualitative meta-synthesis which aims to acquire and extract assumptions, hypothesis or even just common grounds for further investigation, are applied to a free-association test on social risk.
