SurveyCTO is thrilled to announce the launch of its new monthly webinar series. In each interactive webinar, our experts will present a SurveyCTO functionality that you can apply to build smarter surveys and collect better quality data. If you miss it, you can always watch a recording from our video library.
Webinar series overview
This series will replace SurveyCTO Office Hours, which welcomed attendees to meet our expert support team and ask questions in an open-ended format.
With this free webinar series, attendees will still be able to engage with our support team, as well as enhance their SurveyCTO skills on a specific topic. Each session will feature a brief 20-minute presentation, followed by 10 minutes for questions and answers. The webinars will also be recorded and available in our video library to review and share.
The first webinar will be held on July 9, 2019 1 PM UTC / 9 AM ET and will focus on repeat group relationships in household surveys.
What you’ll learn in the first webinar: Repeat group relationships
When conducting a household survey, establishing relationships between different members of a household roster can reveal much about the rest of the collected data. Who is married to whom? Do all the children have the same parents? Or are things more complicated? In this webinar, you’ll learn how to design smarter forms to uncover the connections and dynamics in the households you’re trying to understand.
In SurveyCTO, household members are typically captured using repeat groups, which are groups of fields that loop to capture the same information about every household member. By displaying previously captured data as response options and choice filters, you can return to and display information from a household roster, as well as establish connections between different roster entries. For example, you can indicate that Margaret, captured in instance three of the roster, is the wife of Daniel, captured in the first instance of the roster.
We’ll walk you through a household survey example where we’ll first create a roster of household members, followed by two rosters that match spouses to each other and children to parents. Lastly, we’ll store those connections. To do this, you’ll learn basic and advanced uses of the following:
- Repeat groups.
- Selecting previously captured values.
- Passing data between repeat groups.
- Choice filtering.
- Dynamic choice lists.
Mastering these features will help you to better understand your subjects and generate more meaningful data.
