Comparison tables are one of our new analysis features that allow you to compare two distinct populations (or even two individuals) in a single table. This also allows you to generate gap analysis between these populations, which is shown within the table as a bar graph.
“All of this in a simple drag and drop interface?” I hear you say. Yes, exactly. In a few clicks you’ve got an in depth gap analysis of two distinct populations. As our American intern Nancy would say “that’s money!”
This type of table is especially useful with 360⁰ analysis as it allows you to compare an individual to the larger population in a single table with gap analysis.
To illustrate this table I’ve used a very simple questionnaire:
- From Analyze Results > create a report for the questionnaire of your choice > and click on “Data Analyzer”
- Clicking on the small + at the top of your list of questions opens the advanced features of this list. This is where you’ll find the Comparative Table option.
Select the Cross Tab type of table and drag the “Comparative Table” option to the Column Box. A set up window will pop-up allowing you to set up the different populations you want to compare. Set them up by enabling the filters you require.
Once you’ve validated your population filters select the type of data analysis you would like to perform and drag it to the Data Box, then click on “Generate Table”.
For gap analysis click on the table Options > Advanced > and select the types of gap analysis you would like. Select the bar chart to show a graphic representation of the gap analysis within the table itself.
Example: My first population consists of women who like red and my second population consists of Men who like blue. I chose to compare these two population based on their answers to two slider type questions. The gaps are represented in green because they are both positive (they would be red and to the left if they were negative).
Here’s the result:
You are now ready to add your table to your report where it will be updated in real-time as answers flow in. Publish your report online and your collaborators can follow your results and the evolution of your comparative tables in real-time from anywhere in the world!
