WinQuery FAQ

CATI stands for "computer assisted telephone interview" and refers to a type of software used at phone centers. Here, interviewers dial phone numbers of potential respondents at their home or place of business, with the respondents representing a select sampling of the population.

CAPI stands for "computer assisted personal interview." This type of interviewing is usually completed in person at the homes or businesses of selected respondents, or at mall intercept centers. WinQuery can be easily switched between these two modes.

Yes. You can save any questionnaire in web-ready format. You can then easily upload the web-ready files to our hosting server running QueryWeb.

Yes. WinQuery users can easily share work with each other. In order to complete large studies in less time, WinQuery users can tap into the capacity of other WinQuery users and share work.

WinQuery data is stored in ASCII files. Using this widely recognized format, data can easily be output in either .SAV, Excel, comma-delimited, tab-delimited, single record layout or card/column format.

Using some simple formatting rules, you can import almost any type of survey questionnaire, then edit it in WinQuery. This can save you a lot of time during the programming process and in duplication of tasks.

Data collected in WinQuery can be directly imported into WinCross and SPSS. With the purchase of an optional linking module, WinQuery data can also be used by Uncle, Microtab, Quantum, Merlin or The Survey System.

The Master Expert and Expert versions are optional WinQuery features which can be purchased separately. The Expert versions are the most expedient method of creating WinQuery questionnaires, since they let you write logic commands using your text editor for inclusion in your questionnaire, bypassing the Build Questionnaire menu options.

Master Expert allows you to program a WinQuery study using logic commands to input question text, answer text and study logic. Regular Expert version only allows logic to be applied to an existing study (question and answer text must be input separately for regular Expert version).
