About Statistics Tables
The Statistics Table displays basic statistics for the results of your questions. These statistics include minimum, maximum, mean, variance, and standard deviation. The table also has a column for total responses.
For general Table Options and customization, see the Tables Overview page.
The variables compatible with the Statistics Table include:
Text Entry questions are incompatible with Statistics Tables, even when they have numeric validation.
Constant Sum questions only display the number of responses.
Pick, Group, and Rank questions only display the mean rank for each item for each group they can be sorted into.
In addition to the primary statistics listed above, you can also include top or bottom box.
Top box is the percentage of respondents who fit into the highest ends of the scale. You can specify how many scale points are included in this box by highlighting Top Box and selecting a number.
Bottom box is the percentage of respondents who fit into the lowest ends of the scale. You can specify how many scale points are included in this box by highlighting Bottom Box and selecting a number.
Adding a Top/Bottom Box
- Navigate to Table Options by right-clicking your table or clicking the button in the toolbar.
- Select Top Box or Bottom Box.
- Select a number. This number determines how many scale points you include in the box.
Your table will now display the number of the scale points in the box, in addition to the percentage of respondents who fit into this box.
The only way to remove Top or Bottom box is by going to Table Options and selecting Clear Properties.
The question pictured below has a 5 point agreement scale, where “Strongly agree” has the highest numeric value at 5, “Somewhat agree” is worth 4 points, “Neither agree nor disagree” is 3 points, and so on. If you set your Top Box equal to 2 scale points, this box would contain the highest scale points, “Strongly agree” and “Somewhat agree.”
If 25% of respondents “Strongly agree” and 15% of respondents “Somewhat agree,” then the Top Box would be 40%.
