Hello All

Hope some of you have come across this and can help explain what is going on.

I have a survey with many mandatory List (radio) type questions with the 'Other' option switched on.

When I use the Quick statistics tool to view the data it lists the number of Other responses, along with the option to 'Browse' these responses. However, there are often one or two fewer responses listed than there are reported in the overall number, e.g., it may say Other 45, but when I browse there are only 43 listed. :unsure:

When this happens, can I be certain that this is due to people breaking off after clicking 'Other', but before they type in an 'Other' response. This is what I'm assuming.

I'm using an institutional installation of Limesurvey Version 1.90+ Build 9642

Thanks for your help.
