Data Collection Method Interviewees were identified through reputational and snowball sampling. Two interviewers attended each interview in most instances. Interviews lasted between 45 minutes and 3 hours. Interviews were digitally recorded with permission of the interviewees. Recordings were professionally transcribed verbatim.
Variable Description Data are primarily textual and qualitative in nature.
Data Processing Method Each transcript was manually coded independently by two researchers to ensure inter-coder reliability. Transcripts were analyzed using a three-step coding scheme: 1) identification of major themes with comparisons between the coders to produce a codebook; 2) use of codebook to organize key ideas and identify sub-themes within the initial set of themes; and 3) identification of direct quotes to highlight themes and subthemes.
