Snap Survey Software How-to: Use Interlocking Quotas in Online Surveys

Use interlocking quotas to limit responses in online surveys 

In our how-to blog on Friday, January 11, Snap Survey Software How-to: Limit the Number of Respondents in an Online Survey we discussed times when a specified sample of Snap WebHost online survey respondents is required. For example, you may wish to limit the numbers of males and females completing your online surveys, or limit the numbers in each age group. For this, you can simply set-up a quota. Quotas may be used to limit the number of respondents in identified categories in a single question.

We have developed a subsequent worksheet where we describe how to limit the number of respondents in a Snap WebHost online survey in multiple categories, for example, by gender and age. This is known as an interlocking quota.

We walk you through the steps to easily set-up quotas in your next Snap WebHost online survey. The steps include:

Step 1: Create a derived variable

Step 2: Set up the weight for the derived variable

Step 3: Set up the quota that associates the weight and the variable

Step 4: Activate the quota
