Display a chart of survey results

  1. Let's say you have yes or no questions on your survey as shown below and would like to show a chart that shows the results.
  2. Every form you make in Google Docs will have an automatically generated spreadsheet with the result. Go to Google Docs and open your survey's spreadsheet.

  3. In this sample, we would like to have a chart that shows the number of yeses and nos on column B and C. The spreadsheet cannot automatically count these numbers, so you must write formulas to compute them. Set this up on place that will not overlap with the survey results, in this case on columns G-I.
    We want to count the number of yeses for Sample Question 1 on column B. The formula for this would be =countif(B:B,"Yes"). Do the same for the number of nos for Sample Question 1, and yeses and nos for Sample Question 2. Make sure you change the formulas to their corresponding ranges (e.g. =countif(B:B,"No") for the number of nos for Sample Question 1).
