A Limesurvey plugin which allows splitting up data by options of any single choice question, e.g. by country, state, city, gender, age, department, …

The Split Data LimeSurvey plugin supports showing a response summary split up into different sections. Imagine running an employee satisfaction survey at which you are asking for department details. Based on that question the split data LimeSurvey plugin will show a list of available departments you can pick from. After selecting e.g. “Sales”, the Split Data plugin then generates a summary listing all the responses of the Sales employees on a single page. You can be print the summary and also export uploaded files.
Another example is asking for country or state or location details. You can even use the plugin to split up data based on gender or income or age range details. You can use any single choice question.

At LimeSurvey all you need to do is defining the question which should be used. The Split Data LimeSurvey plugin will then generate a summary of answer options and show completed/incompleted/total number of data sets. For each option with data available the tool shows a link to the summary. Clicking that link leads to an overview page listing all matching data sets. That summary shows question text + answers given of every participant. The overview is separated by question groups and shows each response as a single block. The design is similar to LimeSurvey’s Print answers feature. 

You can enable this plugin globally at the plugin settings. Every Limesurvey user can then use the new feature for any Limesurvey survey.
