Data Downloads and Formatting Options

Overview

After running a standard or a custom report in the Portal, you have a variety of options available for downloading your data.

1:  About Data Filtering

The automatic downloads provided will reflect the same base as your report. For example, if you have a base of 600 in your report, the data downloads will all show a base of 600. If you have various segments with various base amounts in your report, our system will create multiple files for you to download.

2:  Accessing Data Downloads

To access the data download options for your survey, click on "Data Downloads" under the "Report" menu:

The Data Downloads window will appear, where you can select your preferred output format from a list of every available download option:

3:  Data Download Options

Note: Some download types are not available for use with custom data layouts. Those downloads appear in grey and cannot be selected.

SPSS (.sav)

Download to computer

The native file format for SPSS data files.

Note: We use a newer library to generate SPSS *.sav files at twice the speed. Those files are all generated as “unicode” which requires SPSS 16+ if your survey has non-English characters (e.g. accented chars, the € symbol). The SPSS 16+ downloads will give you that file, and a SPSS 15 download will give you the SAV file in the legacy Windows-1252 format.

SPSS (Data+Script)

Download to computer

Different than the complete .sav download, this is a zipped set of files, including the .sps syntax file, data file and readme file.  The syntax, when run, will create a full SPSS file, including value labels.  This option has the same results as downloading the .sav file, however, it is a good option when download bandwidth is an issue, as the syntax files are much smaller.
