Creating Additional Questions for Surveys

When you create additional questions, you can attach them to a category of questions to make it easier to find it later. These categories are created in the Data dictionary and will allow you to classify the Social Baseline additional questions by topics such as Social, Economic, Health, Gender, etc.

Once you have defined the structure of the additional questions, you can create them.

There are 2 categories of additional questions:

  • Household additional questions are for questions that are related to the whole household.
  • Household members additional questions are for questions that have a distinct answer for each individual household member
