Cross Tabulation: Multi-level Correlation
Cross Tabulation is used to investigate potential relationships in responses to two or three close-ended questions. There are three sub-types under Cross Tabulation.
- Cross Tab – Two Level: Two different questions can be selected and compared in the horizontal and vertical variables of the report.
- Cross Tab – Three Level:This variation compares two questions with each other in horizontal and vertical variables of the report based on each answer option of a parent question.
- Pivot Table: Correlate responses to multiple questions based on how participants responded to a single question.
Cross Tabulation cannot be generated for open-ended questions.
Generate Cross Tabulation Report
Follow these steps to generate either type of the report:
- Select your survey and click on Report.
- On the Report menu bar, click on Cross Tabulation.
- Choose the type of report from the following:
- Cross Tab – Two Level
This option will be selected by default. Choose your Stub (Horizontal Variable) and Banner (Vertical Variable) from the list of survey questions. For example, you might want to see whether an employee’s job satisfaction is correlated to tenure.
- Cross Tab – Three Level
You’ll need to add a parent question along with the Stub (Horizontal Variable) and Banner (Vertical Variable). For example, you might add a department question to see if there’s any variety in the potential satisfaction/tenure relationship across departments.
- Pivot Table
Choose a Stub (Horizontal Variable) and multiple Banner (Vertical Variable) questions. For example, you might want to see responses to multiple survey questions broken down by department to check for any possible relationships.
