The Electric Kool-Aid Askia Test

Abstract: Survey scripting and coding have lots in common and we should bring testing techniques into Survey Design.

From time to time clients will raise a query regarding sig testing (Column significativity on closed) for a particular cell changing when the total base of their table grows, even though the count and % for…

Choosing Prague as our new office location is no coincidence, as we had good reasons to opt for this particular city: First…
