Flex matrix or complex grid question in surveys

Survey creators can add questions as sub-topics and their rating scale as rows and columns respectively. Because they combine multiple question types, data analysis is different from the usual questions. It needs a detailed analysis of the responses collected by various layers of questions.

In such cases, inclusive analytics may not be enough. Market researchers need to dig deeper and analyze data in conjunction with other answer items. Organizations that employ massive hardware and software infrastructure often combine data from multiple sources to get a holistic view. Similarly, in market research, when data from various areas or topics are combined, it gives analysts and researchers a better perspective of their target audience.

Flex matrix question helps market researchers view their respondents' preferences and feedback in detail while connecting multiple dots.
