Survey responses presented in horizontal stacked bar

Hello,

I've survey responses presented like in below (multiple participants, multiple questions, 3 options to choose from per each question):

IDQuestion_1Question_2Question_3
101AgreeDon't KnowDon't Agree
102AgreeAgreeDon't Know
103Don't AgreeDon't AgreeDon't Agree

 

I would like to have the data for each question presented as horizontal stacked bar summing up to 100% (one bar per one question), similarily as below:

Could anyone help me/direct in a right way on how to achieve this form of presenting the results?

Thank you in advance

Hi Akaszon,

first adjust your script using CrossTable syntax function similar to:

table:
CrossTable(Question, Answer, 1)

load * Inline [
ID,Q1,Q2,Q3
1,Agree,Don't Know,Don't Agree
2,Agree,Agree,Don't Know
3,Don't Agree,Don't Agree,Don't Agree
];

Then create stacked horizontal bar chart using:

Dim (stack): Question

Dim (bars): Answer

Measure: Count(Answer)/count(total <Question>Answer)

Formatting in percentage.

Hi Mato,

Many thanks for your answer.

About the CrossTable - is there any "automated" way to include all answers given to certain question? It sure can be done manually for 3 participants, but what if I have 100 participants?

Hi @Akaszon,

it is not a problem for crosstable syntax function. Check Qlik help site: https://help.qlik.com/en-US/qlikview/April2020/Subsystems/Client/Content/QV_QlikView/Scripting/Scrip...

Hi @mato32188 ,

I checked this link on Qlik help, but couldn't really find any information on how can I populate the "load * inline" part with all records falling under certain category (following the example that you've posted - instead of "1,2,3" I would like to have all the records stored as "Identifiers" in the data file that I've uploaded).

Still, I was able to paste the larger population manually and create the stacked bar, just the way you showed:

Thank you 🙂

Hi @Akaszon ,

instead of using "load inline", you can use standard load from any file, database or whatever supported by Qlik.

Script could look like:

CrossTable(Question, Answer, 1)

Load

Id,

Q1,

Q2,

Q3,

...

from "file", "db table", etc.;
