The Comparisons page will allow you to compare different subsets or permutations of quantified survey data by means of up to 3 side-by-side columns. Please note that side-by-side comparisons can only be done on quantified constructs (please click here for more on quantified constructs).

Calculating Survey Scores & Sampling Errors

The survey scores of all multiple choice (Likert) and dropdown survey questions are shown as a score out of 10, regardless of how many Likert options the survey questions had – see Calculating Survey Scores for a more detailed explanation. As an indication of whether the number of survey responses are sufficiently representative of the group being surveyed, a context sensitive sampling error icon will also be displayed where appropriate – see Sampling Size & Errors for a more detailed explanation.

Selecting a Survey Model

Select the survey model that will be used as the basis for the comparisons between the different columns by clicking on the Datasets | Survey model dropdown in the side panel.

Setting a Filter for a Column

A different survey dataset (campaign) can be selected for each column (see Survey Models/Datasets for more on selecting a survey dataset/campaign), and filters can be set for the units and sub-units as well as for any permutation of demographic data (see Filtering Survey Responses on setting a demographic and other filters). User-defined headings can also be entered for each column.
