Analysing data

Snap XMP Desktop provides analyses to analyze your response data. The analyses provided are

  • Tables
  • Charts
  • Word clouds
  • Lists
  • Maps

There are pre-defined analyses styles supplied with Snap XMP Desktop. The styles can be used as provided as well as being used to define your own styles.

Analyses are split into three parts:

  • The data that is analysed
  • The data that you choose to display
  • The way it looks

Data analysis

You can limit and vary the responses you use

  • Create derived variables in which you can present responses in different ways
  • Set up filters so you only use subsets of the data
  • Set up contexts variables to see data in different contexts (e.g., how results for an individual compare to the average of all results)

You can analyse the data and display the results in many different ways within Snap XMP Desktop:

  • see a quick summary of totals in the questionnaire summary
  • set up tables, charts, maps, clouds and lists
  • produce statistical analyses
  • set up smart reports
  • Tabular analysis includes holecounts, cross-tabulations, frequency and grid tables.
  • Graphical analysis includes bar, pie, line, area, scatter, doughnut, Gantt, hi-lo charts, word clouds and graphical maps.
  • Descriptive statistics available include: Mean, Mode, Median, Quartiles, Sum, Min, Max, Range, Standard Deviation, Variance, Standard Error, Skewness and Kurtosis.
  • Chi-Square tests, means and medians, standard deviation, standard error, confidence indicators, t-test, U-test and variance available for cross-tabulations.

The results can be expressed as row, column or total percentages or as expected or index values. Results can be ordered and zero suppressed

When you have created your analyses you can:

  • Print the results
  • Include the results in a report
  • Save the results within the survey
  • Export the results to HTML pages for display on the Web
  • Export the results to other software packages for further manipulation
