Cross-tabulation

We refer to cross-tabulation as a limit of the number of answer options you’re allowed to filter on. The most common limit is 5 and it exists to prevent the person analysing a survey from being able to “guess” who gave a certain answer. This is extremely common and important for Employee Surveys, in which anonymity is usually a priority and the person analysing the results often knows the respondents. A cross-tabulation limit can be set by the administrator on an individual user, a certain survey or a certain folder. It’s also possible to set a cross-tabulation limit on the whole account. Your Account Manager can help you with the setup.
