Crosstabs

BETA FEATURE: Crosstab reports are currently in beta and only available to some customers on paid plans.

Crosstab reports let you choose questions and answer choices to display in a table for easy comparison across multiple questions, and share them with other people. A table shows how many times an answer choice was selected, the percentage of responses, and the total number of responses per answer choice.

If you want to compare two or more answers from a single question, you can use a compare rule. Crosstabs are best for when you want to compare multiple questions and answer choices all at once.

Creating a Crosstab Report

Crosstab reports let you choose questions and answer choices to display in a data table for easy comparison across multiple questions. A crosstab displays how many times an answer choice was selected, the percentage of responses, and the total number of responses per answer choice.

Available Question Types

You can select the following question types to display in a crosstab: Multiple Choice, Checkboxes, Star Rating, Dropdown, Matrix / Rating Scale, Net Promoter® Score, Image Choice, Slider, and Ranking. If you're buy responses through SurveyMonkey Audience, you can also use the demographic information in your crosstab report.

Creating a Crosstab Report

Crosstab reports can display all of the data from your survey or you can apply a Saved View to break down your survey results even further. It's not possible to apply a Saved View that includes Compare or Show rules to a crosstab report.

If you edit a Saved View after using it in a crosstab, the settings won't automatically update–you need to recreate your crosstab report.

  1. Go to the Analyze Results section of your survey.
  2. In the ø Rules section of the left sidebar, click + Compare.
  3. Click Create a crosstab report to open the Crosstab Setup window.
  4. Click the pencil icon p next to the title to rename your crosstab report. By default, your crosstab report's name is the survey title.
  5. In the Views dropdown, select a Saved View. To see all of your data, select Original View.
  6. To limit the answer options you display, click the pencil icon p next to a question.
  7. Drag and drop questions from the left side of the screen into the Rows and Columns sections. You can add up to 5 questions to the columns, and up to 10 questions to the rows.
  8. In the lower-right corner of the screen, click Next.
