Total number of cases
Total raw data cases stored for all editions of the current survey
Number of deleted cases
Number of cases deleted across all editions of the current survey
Number of verified cases
Number verified across all editions. Note that verified cases become unverified if they are subsequently changed so this value can increase and decrease over time.
Verified case rate
Number of cases verified divided by the number of cases across all editions (expressed as a percentage)
Time verifying data
Time take to verify data (regardless of edition)
Verification raw error rate
Rate of changes in the raw data (value at each position) in verification across all editions. This tells you the proportion of errors detected (and corrected) during verification. If Ignore Literals is checked on the Data Entry Tailoring dialog, literals are assumed to be 100% accurate. Routing is not followed. Variables which are correctly marked as not asked are assumed to be 100% accurate. If text is inserted in an open response, subsequent characters will be marked as changed if they differ from the character previously in their new position.
Verification character error rate
Rate of changes of codes in multi-choice questions and characters in open-response questions during verification. If Ignore Literals is set on the Data Entry Tailoring dialog, literal variables are not included in the statistic. Routing is not followed. Variables which are correctly marked as not asked are assumed to be 100% accurate. If text is inserted in an open response, subsequent characters will be marked as changed if they differ from the character previously in their new position.
Case error rate
The proportion of verified cases where errors were found.
Number of key depressions
Number of keys pressed for keyed data entry and verification. This includes data entered during any addition, modification or cloning of data but not scanning keying/cleaning. Scanning keys are recorded separately below. It does not account for control key depressions such as Esc, Enter, Tab etc.
Number of cases keyed
Cases created by hand in data entry window i.e. keyed
Number of cases imported
Cases created by email import or database import
Number of cases edited
Cases created or edited via keyed data or imported entry or modified via verification but not scanning. Scanning cases are recorded separately below.
Raw data chars
Characters in rdf (raw data file) excluding spaces
Time editing data
Time spent creating, editing and verifying keyed data, not including any scanning time. Scanning times are recorded separately below. If more than 4 minutes is spent between key presses, timing is suspended until the next key press.
Key depressions per minute
Number of key presses for keyed data and verification divided by time to key and verify. This does not include any scanning keys or time. This is a measure of the speed performance of the operator.
Cases entered per hour
Number of new keyed cases divided by the time to key and verify. This is another measure of the speed performance of the operator.
Cases edited per hour
Number of cases edited divided by the total time spent editing data in an hourly basis. This is another measure of the speed performance of the operator.
Number of cases scanned
New cases created by detecting in scanning
Number of cases rescanned
Existing cases which have had been redetected in scanning
Time detecting scanned cases
Time for detecting scanned cases
Detected scanned cases per hour
Number of cases detected divided by the time for detecting.
Cases edited by keying/cleaning
Number of cases modified during keying/cleaning. Note that multiple passes through keying and cleaning may save the case multiple times.
Scanning key depressions
Number of key presses during keying/cleaning, including Enter and mouse clicks.
Time keying/cleaning scanned data
Time taken during keying and cleaning of the scanned data
Scanning key depressions per minute
Number of key presses (and mouse clicks) divided by the time taken for keying/cleaning. This is another measure of the speed performance of the operator.
Scanned cases edited per hour
Total number of scanned cases that have been keyed/cleaned divided by total time spent editing scanned data in an hourly basis. This is another measure of the speed performance of the operator.
