Adding a jump to another question
You can add an instruction to a questionnaire so that the next step is to jump to a particular question. You can do this either for all respondents who reach a particular point in the questionnaire, or for respondents who meet certain criteria. To jump to another question, use one of the following routing items:
Go to
Use a Go to routing item in a questionnaire that has many sections, where each respondent answers the questions in one section plus a general demographic section. To ensure that each respondent skips the unwanted sections and reaches the demographic section, you could end each section with a Go to item that takes the respondent straight to the start of the demographic section. You can also define Go to conditions for special responses (for example, don't know, refuse to answer, and no answer). For more information, see Go To routing item.
If ... Go to
Use an If...Go to routing item to define routing for some respondents but not others. Specify the respondents to which the condition applies by listing responses (including special responses) that they must have given to previous questions. For example, to create a condition that applies to women, you might say that the response to the Gender question must be Female. The questions and answers that control a conditional jump are commonly called the routing condition because they define the conditions under which the jump will be followed. For more information, see If Go To Routing item.
The Description field enables you to type a description for the Go to or If... Go to, if required. When printing draft paper surveys in UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper, this description is included. Descriptions are not included in the actual paper survey.
