Account Admins, Survey Admins, Survey Creators, Report Viewers

When viewing survey results, or participation by demographic, you may see a category called 'All Others' in your reports.

This represents the group of people that have taken the survey, but there are too few of them to display information for their demographic group. They get bundled together with other small demographic groups where the number of submitted responses is below the threshold of the Reporting Group Minimum.

Note that the participation report will display demographic groups that could meet the reporting minimum based on how many survey participants were assigned to that demographic group at the time of the survey launch.

Groups where there is no possible outcome of the responses meeting the reporting group minimum threshold will be put into the ’All Other’s category by default.

For confidentiality reasons, we cannot display the names of these small groups, as not enough people have taken the survey or have been assigned to this group.

Sometimes if there are too few people in All Others category, it is not displayed in the reports at all. The total number of people needs to exceed the Reporting Group Minimum for All Others to appear.
