Have you found yourself analyzing your data, but need to isolate respondents answer choices a bit further? Not to worry! AYTM has formulated a solution that will allow clients to filter data specifically by answer choices. 

In a previous article we discussed how to use the "Filter by Answers" option so that the data set would only include the respondents that selected a specific answer choice. Click below to learn more about this functionalities of this filter.


For the remainder of this article we will discuss how to filter by answer choices that you do not wish to view in your data set. By using this filter option you will remove all respondent answer choices from the data as they relate to the answer you turned "OFF". Lets walk through the steps together! 

Assume that you've asked a question that contains both an "other" answer option or "none of the above". While reviewing the data, you may realize that the respondents who selected these options may need to be analyzed separately from the other answer choices. With a few quick clicks, this can certainly be achieved!

Using the example above, we will turn "OFF" answer 7 (A7) and answer 8 (A8). To do so, you will need to first click on the "Filter by Answers" tab. Once there you will locate the desired question number where you need to place the filters. In this scenario, we will move to question 4, scroll to find "Answer 7" and "Answer 8", and rather than placing a check in the box you will click on the "OFF" icon. Once activated an "X" should appear by the selected answer choices. 

In order to properly apply the filter you must be sure to click to apply filters toward the top of the statistics page. By doing so, the statistics page will automatically reload to reflect your new filtered data set.

Now that your necessary filters are in place, you are all set to continue analyzing your data! If you have any additional questions please reach out to support@aytm.com or click the chat bubble at the bottom right to start a conversation. We look forward to hearing from you!
