About Statistics Tables

Statistics Tables help you see multiple aggregate metrics for your chosen data source. This visualization evaluates all of the responses collected for that data source and displays calculated results such as mean and standard deviation.

Customization Options

For basic visualization instructions and customization, visit the Visualizations Overview support page. Continue reading for visualization-specific customization.

You can customize the columns you want to include in your Statistics Table. Select a checkbox next to an option to include it, and deselect the checkbox to hide it.

what is selected in the metrics section of the editing pane corresponds to the columns on the statistics table

  • Minimum: The lowest value collected.
  • Maximum: The highest value collected.
  • Mean: The average of all values collected.
  • Median: The median of your data set is the exact midpoint. When all of your collected values as organized from smallest to largest, this value is right in the middle.
    Qtip: Qualtrics calculates the median using a non-deterministic percentiles aggregation to approximate the desired percentage counts at scale. The median, or 50th percentile, is accurate at about 99.9% on average.
  • Standard Deviation: The standard deviation across all values collected.
  • Variance: The variance across all values collected.
  • Responses: The total number of responses collected that contribute to the statistics.
  • Sum: The values of all the responses added together.
  • Top Box: Top box is the portion of respondents who fit into the highest ends of the scale. You can specify how many scale points are included in this box by typing in the field.
    Example: There are three NPS® groups: Promoter, Passive, and Detractor. Setting top box as 3 would make the Top Box field equal to 1, since 100% of the respondents belong to one of the three groups. But if you changed the top box to 1, it would only look at promoters, and the portion would match the portion of respondents who were promoters.
  • Bottom Box: Bottom box is the portion of respondents who fit into the lowest ends of the scale. You can specify how many scale points are included in this box by typing in the field.
    Qtip: Top and bottom box are only options for questions with scales, such as Multiple Choice. Continuous variables, such as Sliders and Text Entry, cannot display top and bottom box.


Select the Styles tab to modify table header and body fonts.

Styles tab. Arrow shows what the alternating row permission affects on the table

Select Alternate Row Colors to shade every other row and make them easier to read. Statistics tables generally only have two or more rows if a Breakout is applied, or if the question loaded is multi-part, like a Matrix Table.

Selecting Repeat Table Header will make sure that the header row (not the title) will repeat as the table gets much larger and has many rows.

Use Margin to adjust the table’s margins.


The Statistics Table is only compatible with variables that can come in numeric formats.
