If you want to “Create one or more single-condition filters”, first select the Question, then which operator logic to base your filter on.

For questions with fixed answer alternatives, you may choose from a dropdown menu with 4 different operator logics:

  1. “any of” will create one separate filter per selection that groups together all respondents that have answered the given alternative
  2. “none of” will create one separate filter per selection that groups together all respondents that have not answered the given alternative
  3. “answered” will group together all respondents that have answered the given question
  4. “not answered” will group together all respondents that have not answered the given question

  3. “is equal to” groups together all respondents that have answered the exact same keyword or sentence in their answer
  4. “answered” groups together all respondents that have answered the
  5. “not answered” groups together all respondents that have not answered the question
