Hi, I would like to know if it is possible to find how many of one gender answered a question no and how many answered yes. Here are the two questions.

What is your gender?
Do you agree with ... Yes/no

I can see what percentage voted either way but not the gender differential.

LimeSurvey statistics is very poor, it just to check your data
For advanced filtering, you'd rather export your Data to R (or excel, or whatever)

As Louis said, Limesurvey statistics is basically just to get a quick report during the fieldwork. Limesurvey is a data collection tool, data analysis should be done in another tool (Excel, R, SPSS, etc.).

Limesurvey does not offer cross tabulation, which is what you would require here. I would download the results to Excel and have a deeper look there.

However, to geta quick idea you can filter the statistics by the gender question: Just only show respondents that answered this question as male, then as female. This should give you the percentage of male that said yes or no and then those of females.

Hi,

to see it in LS you have to use filter.

1. Filter the gender question for "male", display the Yes/No" result.
2. Filter the gender question for "female", display the Yes/No" result.

So you find out the two results a are able to calculate a CHI-square.

Sorry, I did not reaf holch's answer to the end.
He mentioned this already.
