Filtering Poll Results

Results to Power Poll surveys can be filtered by various metrics.  We call this feature "Interactive Results."  This feature is available to Power Poll Members for all polls that they participated in.  Specifically, it's available for each question within the poll that Members answered.

Accessing Interactive Results

  1. Go to your area's page, accessible from the pull down menu at the top right of the Power Poll website.
  2. Select a results article.
  3. Click the "View Interactive Results" button under the "More on this Poll" header (on the right side when using most desktop and tablet devices).
  4. Apply desired filters.
  5. Click "Apply" to view the filtered results.

Filter Options

Logic Operations

Filter selections within a group (Areas, Members, Industry, etc.) are applied with a logical OR.  Groups are then evaluated with a logical AND.  Example: you select "Nashville, TN" and "Austin, TX" from the Areas group and "Female" from the Members group.  The result would include all responses from female Power Poll Members in both the Nashville, TN and Austin, TX areas.


If the poll or quesiton was assigned to multiple Power Poll Areas, you can filter the responses based on 1 or more Areas.


You can filter questions based on basic Member data.  Note: not all Members have such data.


You can filter questions based on the industry of Members, or more precicely, the industry of the business or organization associated with the Member.

Other Notes and Issues

Industry Sources

Industry selections are basd on the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS).  You can learn more about that here.  We match organizations to a NAICS code based on data from Dun and Bradstreet.

Inadequate Responses

You will occasionally see the message, "There are not enough responses to show the results," instead of the expected results.  We only show filtered results to preferential questions when there are sufficient responses as to not be able to decipher the respondent.  This limitation does not apply to predictive questions, since there should be no bias present.  We also limit a few combinations of filters for the same reason.
