Creating a Crosstab Report

Crosstab reports show the relationship between two or more survey or profile questions. It allows you to see a side-by-side comparison of how different groups of respondents answer a question. For example, you can view the results of a survey question by gender and education level.

To access Crosstab reports, Fuel Cycle Discovery will need to be enabled for the community and your account will need to be given permission to access it. When you have access, you’ll see an icon in the header that will allow you to launch into Fuel Cycle Discovery and access Crosstabs.
