A Topline Report gives an overview of your survey responses, summarising the data collected into one PDF document, and is best used in conjunction with the raw data file.


The Topline Report will look like your survey with the results displayed as a count and the percentage in brackets next to the answer code.  The report will only display results for multi-choice responses: if you want to have a closer look at free text responses, you can request your raw data file.


For categorical questions (tick box style questions), using the example below, 88% of respondents said Yes and 12% said No. As this is a single response question we can add the counts together and find that, in total, 361 respondents answered this question.



For open-ended questions, the count indicates the number of respondents that answered the question rather than the result itself. Using the example below, 256 respondents provided an answer to the postcode question and 6 respondents for the country of residence question. You will need to find the relevant column in the raw data file to view the list of postcodes and countries given.
