Survey Frequencies is a reporting tool that allows you to review survey activity and easily check your data quality once fielding has started..
Data included in the report may be selected according to the time range in which it was collected. Logical and High Speed Data Filters that have been previously defined in the data filter feature can also be applied to further specify which data will be displayed in the report.
The report may include several charts, depending on which types of frequencies you choose to include. Data is organized by respondent status, with green for completes, red for dropouts, blue for profile terminates, and yellow for quota terminates. Note that in the example below it may look like there are more dropouts and profile terminates than completes. However, it merely appears that way due to the order in which the data is displayed, with completes at the bottom and profile terminates at the top.
1: Frequency Types
The report may include up to four types of frequencies:
1.1: Respondent activity frequencies per date
Respondent activity frequencies per date will display the overall number of completes, dropouts, quota terminates, and profile terminates by date.
1.2: Response frequencies per question
Response frequencies per question will display the number of completes, dropouts, quota terminates, and profile terminates on a question-by-question basis.
1.3: Validation error frequencies per question
Validation error frequencies per question will display the number of respondents that have encountered a validation error message on a question-by-question basis.
1.4: Termination frequencies per question
Termination frequencies per questionwill display the number of individuals who were profile terminated at each individual question.
The report may be output to the screen or to an Excel sheet. If you choose the Excel output, the final report will be stored in the Report Repository.
2: Additional Output Options
2.1: JPG images
Generate charts also as downloadable JPG images: When outputting survey frequencies to the screen, this allows you to have a “Download chart as JPG” button for each chart.
2.2: Use Mouse over labels
When outputting survey frequencies to the screen, this allows you to mouse over data points to view their values.
2.3: Embed charts into Excel reports
When outputting survey frequencies to Excel, this determines if charts are exported as well.
