askiaanalyse 5.3.3 has been released and it is fully packed with many new features and fixes. Below, we’ll detail some of the most interesting aspects of this new version:

Simplification of the tab definition panel

In order to declutter the `Tab definition` panel (especially for users who do not need advanced functionality), we have added a `Simplify general tab` option. When active, a new `Advanced` panel is displayed below the `Edges`. All the following controls are moved from General to advanced:

  • Title
  • Universe
  • Level
  • Chart templates

Additions to the variable Description panel

We now also display the `Entry code` to the `Description` panel:

Also, each column is now sortable!

Customise the question caption in the treeview / tab definition

Simultaneously displaying different combinations of question captions; especially when manipulating a .QES/.QEW file you did not create.

Two new options have been added:

  • Shortcut + Long Caption
  • Short caption + Long caption

This feature is also available for the `Tab Definition` panel.

New export tools

The `Export to` MS Word, MS Excel & MS PowerPoint buttons have been added to the application’s toolbar.

You can use these directly from the `Results`, `Table` & `Portfolio` views.

You can add a table of contents to your MS Excel export by means of the below option:

Import assets from another survey

Click the `Tools` menu and click `Import survey definitions`; you will be prompted to select the survey from which you wish to import one or more assets.

You have the possibility to import the `Sub-populations`, `Weightings` & `Calculated variables`.

New calculations

Mention rate

To extend our support for more calculations, we have added `Mention rate` in crosstabs. All results will be calculated on the base of `Sum of responses`.

New calculations by Script: Counts & Percentage

We have added the `Script (base)` calculation for Totals which means you can override the default value for `Counts` to show the base (which makes it clear to explain how you calculate the %).

Wilcoxon’s Rank Sum Test

To compare two `Means` on paired samples (e.g. before / after comparison)

Word clouds

You now have the possibility to export your word cloud as an image (.BMP, .JPG or .GIF).

[]({width:600px}https://dev.askia.com/attachments/download/11512/14-analyse533-calculations-e.png)

We have also added the `Group` feature to word clouds; these allow you to group words and (re)use them for other word clouds. You can add words to an existing category or create a new one:

[]({width:600px}https://dev.askia.com/attachments/download/11514/16-analyse533-calculations-g.png)

You can of course manage your `Group` library by clicking the `Group` button:

[]({width:600px}https://dev.askia.com/attachments/download/11515/17-analyse533-calculations-h.png)

Groups can be edited directly in any text editor:

[]({width:300px}https://dev.askia.com/attachments/download/11516/18-analyse533-calculations-i.png)

Once you have amended / maintained your `Group` library, you can either display: `All words`, `Grouped words only` or `Groups only` in your word clouds.

New features for Numeric questions

DK management

You can assign different values on Numeric or Closed question and specify the `Base type`:

[]({width:600px}https://dev.askia.com/attachments/download/11517/19-analyse533-numeric-a.png)

Let’s imagine the Numeric question contains the value 10 (a value that is considered as DK /not concerned in this example).
You can now set the DK value to its `Base type` (in the response `Properties`), change the factors (from 10 to NR). The statistic calculation will exclude it automatically.

[]({width:300px}https://dev.askia.com/attachments/download/11508/20-analyse533-numeric-b.png)

Note: the answering base on Numeric question will display only the count per DK answers.

There are many more features in this brand new askiaanalyse, such as full 64-bit compliance, the new Longitude & Latitude calculated variables, … So be sure to access the entire list of features.
