How is The Matrix Survey Score Calculated?

Go to the Analyze > Overall results tab to see how many times your respondents selected each answer choice. Here, we automatically calculate your responses and show them by column, along with the total responses count, and identify which row is the most popular response by percentage.

Both on the graph and in the table below, you can see the percentage of responses given to each answer choice.

Calculate Matrix Survey Results

Your responses are presented in a stacked bar chart for each column. The results of each answer choice are calculated similarly: divide the number of responses to a particular answer choice by the number of total responses, and multiply this by a hundred.

💡 Let's check the score for answer choice Reliable product, column Neither satisfied nor dissatisfied:
