In the 'Categories - Multiple answers' question type, respondents are given the option to select one or more answers from a number of possible answers (categories).
It is also advisable to consider the possibility that we have not provided all possible answers and, if necessary, to add an 'Other' category to the question (semi-open question type). This allows the respondent to write in their own answer if they do not identify with any of the predefined categories. In this case, the analysis can be a bit more complex as the descriptive answers have to be recoded (e.g. 'apple', 'apple' and 'apples' recoded to the same value).
For this question type, you can choose from the following layouts:
- Horizontal beside question
- Horizontally below question
