Survey Data and Descriptors

Survey Data and Descriptors

Dedoose's Survey Import tool automatically creates descriptors and links those descriptors to their associated qualitative data upon import. This means you do not have to create or import descriptor fields if you use the Survey Import tool. 


For a demonstration of how to utilize the Survey Import tool, please reference the Survey Data Preparation guide. The guide and associated video demonstrates: 

  • Preparing your spreadsheet
  • Importing the spreadsheet
  • Assessing import quality 
  • Overview of analysis charts and data visualizations
