    It is difficult to tell from your request – is the question a checkbox type question?

    If so, look at this community posting from a few months ago that explained the problem – . This has a brief explanation of the problem and includes a link to detailed article that explains how percentages for checkbox questions are calculated.

    I am also flagging your request for the attention of the SurveyGizmo Support team.  You posted your telephone number on the public Community forum, and i don’t think that is something you intended to do.

      • Hi SG,

        It is under the reports section, by behavior Analysis Summary. I was wondering how the responses are more than what we get per total responses collected by department.
