This example shows how to produce holecount and means tables of the responses to a grid of semantic scale questions. It uses the example pictured below from the Crocodile Rock Cafe survey (Q7.a to Q7.c).

Semantic Scale question

Producing a holecount table

This allows you to see quickly how many people have chosen each response.

  1. Click AnalysisTblIcon.png to display the Analysis Definition dialog for a table.
  2. Add the semantic scale grid variables to the Analysis field. You can add the whole set in the form Q7.a to Q7.c, or you can add individual questions separated by commas.
  3. Select Holecount table from the dropdown list in the Break field (or type HOLECOUNT or COUNT in the field, in upper or lower case).
  4. If you wish, select the Analysis percents option to display the percentage choosing each response.
