Surveys are a potent tool to gauge the mood and preferences of your target audience. No wonder every business falls back on them to conduct market research. Surveys also enable organizations to understand the needs of their employees and stakeholders. Customer service surveys are all-pervasive across industries and businesses as they give a good understanding of customer behavior and satisfaction levels. It takes specialized skills to prepare survey questions that give you specific results. Once the questionnaire is ready and the survey is done, you have to enter the data in certain formats to drive insights.
Surveys, however, involve a lot of work. A survey begins with the setting of objectives regarding the kind of information to be collected. Once set, the survey objectives are articulated in the form of a questionnaire which is distributed among the respondents. A survey's success also depends on the size and type of the population sample selected and, finally, its efficient administration. Survey results can be administered only after they are gleaned from the questionnaires, analyzed and summarized. As part of our questionnaire data entry services, we extract and distil the jumble of information on a questionnaire into a form that can yield a coherent and comprehensible set of statistics. The raw survey data is thus transformed into information which can aid your business decisions and strategy.
Survey questionnaire data processing is an exacting task that calls for specialization. It requires a variety of skills such as coding, data entry and editing. Besides, the entire data processing procedure must be monitored to ensure that there are no slips. It is important to adopt a methodical and consistent approach to the task so that the processing is completed satisfactorily and on schedule to produce a file of data that is as error-free as possible. Poor quality data capture can result in imperfect data explanation and a great volume of data being discarded.
Data Processing must pass through several stages. To begin with, one must derive sets of data from the survey results so that they may be analyzed and summarized. This might involve separating the survey respondents into groups by gender, profession, age group, economic background or geographical provenance. Another step in the process is classifying the survey respondents on the basis of their answers. For example, all females who answer in the negative to a question might be in one group and those who answer in the affirmative in another. Thus, relationships are traced between demographic groups and categories of responses. Whenever necessary, percentages must be deduced to interpret survey results. Sometimes, along with the percentage, one has to compute the mean and standard deviation to make sense of questionnaire data. All these tasks demand a lot of time and rigorous application. At the end of it all, questionnaire data might need editing too so that faulty data is corrected or removed and reliable statistics are generated. Editing has to be undertaken if outputs from the collection are mutually inconsistent, for example, if a component exceeds an aggregate value. The whole process ends with the data being entered in spreadsheets and databases or presented in the form of charts and tables.
