Why do I see fewer demographic categories/segments in the report than the number of options in the survey?

The purpose of the demographic categories/segments is to provide an internal benchmark, or to compare the experiences or responses of your employee groups, and identify gaps that suggest inequity. Our reporting templates have a maximum of 8 categories for any demographic question; if there were any more than that, the comparisons become complex and the risk is that there are too few people in any one category/segment to draw valid comparisons. Pulsely’s algorithms analyze the similarity of responses among the segments of your employees; groups are combined only when they are having similar experiences. This approach simplifies your synthesis of information and allows you to identify the most significant gaps over the greatest number of employees.
