Learn how to isolate your results to a subset of participants for deeper analysis

Once you've gathered your results, you may want to drill down into a particular subset of participants—or an individual participant—to view their responses isolated from the rest of the group. This is where filters come in.

You can filter your results by the following categories:

Filtering by demographic attributes

On the lefthand side of your Results page, you will see all of the demographic information collected about your participants under the Filters tab.

  • If you ordered from the Lyssna panel—only the demographic information you targeted on the order form will appear here

  • If you ordered from the external panel—you will see country, age range, gender, education level and annual household income regardless of whether you targeted all of those categories or not

  • If you recruited from your own audience—you will see only the categories that you selected if you chose to collect demographic information when you set up your link (available only on the Pro plan)

Next to the demographic attribute, you will see the number of participants who fit into that category. You can filter the results of your test by these demographic attributes by ticking the box next to the desired one.

You can also select multiple attributes to layer those categories on top of each other and view responses from participants who meet all of the criteria:

Filtering by source, panel order, or recruitment link

Below the demographic information in the Filters view, you will see the participant source(s). If you recruited from a combination of the Lyssna panel, our partner panel, and/or your own audience, you can filter your results to see responses only from the desired source.

If you placed multiple orders with either panel, or sent out multiple recruitment links, you will see those listed and numbered based on the order you placed or created them. Tick the box next to one or multiple to view the results only from that order or link.

Filtering by custom variable

If you recruited from your own audience and created custom variables to help identify or categorize your participants, you will see those at the bottom of the Filters view, under your source(s).

You can select one or more custom variables to filter your results for those participants or groups of participants:

Filtering by response

If you want to dive in to the results of participants who responded to a particular question in the same way, you can isolate the results of those participants by filtering by the response itself.

Click the filter icon next to the response—this will hide the responses of those who did not answer that way so that you can easily analyze the results of those who did.

Filtering by participant

If you would like to dive in to a particular panelist's responses to your entire test, you can do that one of two ways—from the Participants tab, or from a free-written response.

From the Participants tab

Click Participants in the lefthand sidebar, next to Filters. By default, you will only see the date of submission and country of residence for each participant. You can drill down into each participant's answers by clicking the participant information icon.

From a written response

If you have included short or long-text questions in your test, you can hover over a participant's written response, then click the participant icon to open the information drawer.

Participant information drawer

Clicking the participant information icon via either of the above methods will open up the participant's information drawer. The information drawer allows you to isolate a participant's responses from the rest of the group, while comparing it to their screener answers and their demographic information.

In it, you will see:

  • The participant's demographic breakdown. You will see all of the categories shown in the image below if you ordered from the Lyssna panel. If you ordered from the external panel you will see country, age, gender, annual income, and education level. If you self-recruited, you will only see demographic information here if you selected to collect it when you created your link.

  • The participant's source (Lyssna panel, partner panel, or self-recruitment link)

  • The participant's answers to your screener questions, if you included them in your test

  • The custom variable associated with that participant, if you used them

  • The participant's full set of responses to your test

Please note that we do not provide any personally identifiable information about participants from the Lyssna panel and it is prohibited for you to ask for it in your test.
