Response rate & Respondents

Response rate

In the platform we are calculating counting the respondents to calculate a response rate.

Response rate is calculated in the following way:

Number of unanswered Campaign members exposed to a survey within the given time frame
The number of responses within the same time frame.


To calculate the response rate, we count the respondents. Respondents is counted if a campaign member have a "first survey exposure". This mean, that all campaign members who had the chance to answer a survey is counted.

Below we have collected a list of the most common survey status codes, which excludes a campaign member from counting as a respondent.
