A Topline Report contains the number of answers and skips for each question plus frequencies and errors for multiple choice questions. Error margins are calculated by using 95% confidence value (z=1.96) [Margin of Error Formula]. Numeric responses also contain min, max, mean, and standard deviation.

You can also add charts to your report by selecting the icon next to your report name. This will pull up the Chart Configuration screen, which will have a list of the questions in your topline report.

Each type can be previewed by clicking on the “Preview” icon to the right of the Chart dropdown menu. The preview is simulated and does not reflect the actual data for that question. Select the SAVE THIS CONFIGURATION button when you are finished.
