Responses summary

The following section of LimeSurvey focuses on responses and statistics creation. Once accessed, the summary page is displayed by default:

The first table is called "Response summary" and displays the following:

  • Full responses - the number of surveys submitted by your respondents (by clicking the "Submit" button located on the last page of your survey
  • Incomplete responses - the number of surveys that have not been completely filled out by your respondents

In the Responses table, the incomplete answers are response records with no submission date. Such a record can occur when a participant uses the resume later function, or when an operator uses the data entry functionality to fill out a survey without submitting the answer, or when a participant fails to complete the survey because he/she just left.

  • Total responses - the aggregated number of complete/full and incomplete responses

If you make use of the survey participants option, then a summary of the survey participants-related data is displayed on this page below the "Response summary" table:

  • Total invitations sent - the number of invitations sent to your participants from the survey participants table
  • Total surveys completed - shows the number of surveys that have been completed by your survey participants who have been allocated a token code
  • Total with no unique token - displays the number of survey participants without an assigned token code
  • Total records - the number of survey participants from the survey participants table

Toolbar options

The following options are displayed on the top toolbar:

  • Summary - the page you land on after clicking the Responses & statistics button
  • Responses - redirects you to the survey response table
  • Data entry - used to manually introduce responses into the survey response table - mainly used when survey responses were collected offline
  • Statistics - provides simple and complex statistics, as well as the possibility to export your data outside LimeSurvey
    • Statistics - simple mode - makes use of the in-built statistics function to generate simple graphs and charts
    • Statistics - expert mode - allows you do select certain data to be displayed in the statistics. In the case where the in-build expert mode is not sufficient for your needs, you can export the data in other formats to further analyse it by using other statistics-specialized software
  • Timing statistics - if timings is enabled, the timing statistics option will be shown in the toolbar. It displays time-related statistics such as the total time spent by your respondents filling out the survey, as well as each question group and question
  • Iterate survey - used to launch the same survey to the same set of survey participants to analyse trends
