To create online survey is half the work when you need to conduct some research. When your survey is finally built and sent out to respondents, you have solved only one problem, which is gathering data. But another critical problem is analyzing all this amount of information received from respondents, especially when you have large focus groups, complicated or long-lasting surveys. It can be really time consuming to summarize entries by each field manually. But certain kinds of online survey statistics cannot even be retrieved manually at all. Considering the above, it is better to use online survey tools that provide you with automated statistics so that you are able to track real-time results, know where respondents come from and how quickly they complete a survey, etc. Let’s see what automated online survey stats can help you know:
NUMBER OF SURVEY SUBMISSIONS IN THE DEFINED PERIOD
Due to automated stats you can visualize dayly, weekly, monthly and total survey submissions or select any custom period, seeing how the amount of submissions changed through time.
SURVEY CONVERSION RATE
Survey conversion rate is the proportion of survey submissions to unique views. For example, you received 5 submissions from respondents and survey statistics shows you that the survey was viewed by 66 people in total. This means that survey conversion rate is about 7%. That’s good to know, because it allows you to figure out how effective your survey is.
WHERE RESPONDENTS COME FROM AND WHAT TECHNOLOGY THEY USE
If you embed your online survey to one or several web pages or post links to it somewhere, you should know which of these sources give you more survey views and submissions. Then you will know how to disseminate the survey more effectively.
It is also important to know respondents’ geographical location as well as what browsers and operating systems they use in order to have proper segmentation.
With automated survey stats you don’t have to count how many of your respondents select this or that choice. You can see percentage and numbers for each field (whether it was filled or not) and each option if you have multiple variants such as radiobuttons or checkboxes.
HOW MUCH TIME RESPONDENTS SPEND WITH YOUR SURVEY
By tracking time spent by your respondents to fill in a field or complete entire survey you are able to use this knowledge to optimize survey structure and clarify questions. Thus, your online surveys become more professional and user friendly.
