Making sense of survey data: Laying the Foundation for Data Analysis

Making Sense of Survey Data

Care to get some tips on how to look at your survey data? ¬†I’ve been an analyst for nearly 20 years now and was featured in a joint webinar with SurveyGizmo¬†(my favorite survey tool) .

The webinar will be covered the basics of reporting of data, types of variables (Nominal/Categorical, Ordinal, Interval and Scale/Ratio) and best practices of how to report on them.  I also reviewed how, by creating binary variables, you can simplify a lot of your reporting.  The webinar is sightly over an hour long.  I showed a few tips for using Excel pivot tables and demonstrated how to replicate graphs quickly & easily.

I’m hoping to have another one getting a bit more specific on using SPSS and cranking-out Excel / PowerPoint slides. ¬†ūüôā

Transposing clipboard content in any program- No need to run to Excel!

Transposing clipboard content

While it is easy to use Excel to transpose rows into columns, I’ve created an AutoHotkey script which negates the need to. ¬†Basically it examines what is on the clipboard and replaces tabs with line breaks, then it sends paste to the program thus it is¬†transposing clipboard content. ¬†I have it triggered of hitting a hotkey and comes in pretty handy and can save some time if it is something you do frequently.

Below is a video which demonstrates it usage.

Automating StumbleUpon submissions with AutoHotKey

Automating StumbleUpon submissions

I had over 100 URLs I wanted to submit to StumbleUpon.com and wanted to tag them with around 12 interests. This would have taken me quite some to do manually so I wrote an AutoHotKey script to web scrape and cranked it out in no time!
Below is the video demonstrating the Automating StumbleUpon submissions.

And here is the first draft of my script  (I only included 3 urls in this example)
