Abstract
Many studies focusing on design activities use the interview technique as part of their investigation.

Part II presents the social aspects affecting the interviews on the theme of design activities and the means to identify and deal with these factors. Systematically taking this set of social aspects into account when analyzing interview data makes it likely that the bias induced by social factors can be identified and dealt with. The two parts can be read independently. (Less)
