How to Filter and Compare Results (Segmenting and Cross-Analysis)
These features allow you to separate your project results into smaller, more digestible, sets of information. There are six rules by which you can break down these results:
Choose to only view the results for an individual question, and answer to that question. Any answer options you provided respondents with will be selectable from a list. However, any text responses submitted by participants can be filtered by:
- ‘All Words’
- ‘Any Word’
- ‘Exact Phrase’
Search for a respondent’s custom field data to inspect their results alone.
Filter respondents by the domain they came to your project from.
Select a ‘Date From’ and ‘Date To’ to see results submitted on or between those dates.
Use the IP addresses of respondents view results by the country they were submitted from.
Filter out respondents who did not complete your entire project.
Use filters to limit the sets of information you can view in your project results. To start applying filters follow the guidelines below:
- Open a project that has collated results
- Go to the Results section
- Open ‘Filters and Comparisons’ in the sidebar
- Click the ‘Add Filter’
- Select a filter option from the drop-down list
- Click ‘Next Step’
- Input the additional rules for the filter
- Click ‘Save Filter’
Once you have applied a filter, you will see it listed beneath the ‘Filters’ element in the sidebar.
Applying Multiple Filters
It is possible to apply multiple filters to your project results. You simply need to follow the same process as above to accomplish this, and you’ll see your second filter appear below your first in the sidebar.
You will also be given two options that determine HOW these filters should interact:
- Match Any
- Match All
This option will filter all respondents that correspond to ANY of the filters you apply.
E.g. Age: 18-24 and Age: 25-30
This match will show all respondents who chose either the 18-24 answer option or the 25-30 option.
Use this to view respondent data for those who correspond with ALL your applied filters.
E.g. Sex: Male, Age: 25-30, Location, New York
Note: Applying two conflicting filters will cause your results to disappear, e.g. Age: 18-24 with Age: 25 will show no results, as a respondent couldn’t have chosen both options.
This feature is also referred to as Cross Analysis or Segmenting. It allows you to compare two filtered sets of data side-by-side. These comparisons are drawn from the questions you will have asked.
If you asked your respondents to divulge their ‘Sex’ (‘Male’ or ‘Female’), the responses can be used to filter your results.
Apply a comparison filter for both ‘Female’ and ‘Male’, and the Quick Report will present all totals and averages according to ‘Sex’.
Once you have applied a comparison, you will also see that an ALL DATA filter has also been applied. This shows you the totals to each section of your report next to your filtered results. This can be deleted if you wish.
Mixing Filters and Comparisons
It can be difficult to control the entire respondent population that participates in your project. By mixing Filters and Comparisons, you can narrow the scope of your Quick Report to a group, or groups, within the total population.
E.g. You may only be interested in the answer choices of 18-24 years old and 25-30 years old. Therefore, you can apply the necessary filters for the age groups, then set up a comparison between them for a side-by-side contrast.
To do this:
- Apply filters of your choice
- Apply a comparison that correlates with those filters
- Do NOT delete the ALL DATA comparison
