Slice and Compare Surveys By Attributes

Objective

The Slice and Compare Surveys by Attribute function is similar to Compare Surveys By Attributes with one additional feature. It first splits the elements within one or more surveys into groups using the attributes of a selected attribute set. These groups of elements are then analyzed for attributes that are common to multiple groups or unique to a single group.

The usage of this function is expected to be infrequent. For some surveys, it may be possible to split the elements into groups based upon an age or age guess attribute, and then compare the groups of elements to determine if there are unique attributes based upon the age of elements.
