After you find and open your dataset, you’re taking into the main area of Crunch. The Crunch screen is divided into three main sections:
- Bar — which is the grey strip at the top (it can jump you to different views)
- Accordion — the nickname for the left-hand panel where all your variables/questions live
- Main area — which is the bulk of the screen where all the tables and graphs happen
We’re going to start by discussing the Accordion, because this is where you access all your questions (and other variables). We’ll refer to all questions and variables as just variables from now on.
The Accordion lets you organize and jump around to the different survey variables. In terms of organization can you reorder these and/or put them into folders. We recommend putting things into folders to suit your analysis so you can quickly find things.
Note: if your Accordion has already has folders set up, you may like to skip to the next section.
Note: As datasets can be shared with other users, you may not want to be making edits while they might be in it and analyzing the data. In which case, you can consider creating a draft before organizing it (or making other large changes), and then publishing it once you’re happy with what you’ve done.
