Carrying out a survey within your organization enables you to keep track of your business progress and the milestones you have attained within a particular time frame. Also, surveys play a crucial role in helping you monitor closely and get feedback from the people who matter most to your business.

When doing a survey, the data and the findings you generate need to be presented to the respective individuals who need to understand the business's environment. This is where survey reports or survey charts come in to give you an expansive room for your data visualization and presentation needs.

With the aid of a survey report example, you can present visual data, which increases the credibility of your data by 43%. You can use the feedback you generate from surveys to make prudent development decisions to elevate your business to the next level. When conducting a survey within your business and the market audience, you need to figure out the best approach to use.

In addition, you need to have a clear picture in mind of the ultimate goal of your survey and a glimpse of the feedback you are likely to receive from the audience. For instance, you might decide to survey if you have plans to introduce a new product, expand your business, or if you want to make changes to the existing products. 

The most important thing is to find out whether your business plans are viable or not. To make your efforts successful, you need to learn and comprehend the survey best practices to keep your dream valid and your mission successful.


Best Survey Charts to Present Your Survey Data

After collecting data from your survey analysis, you need to present it in an easily understandable manner. Data visualization offers you a chance to visualize your survey data in a more straightforward format. Let’s check them out!

1. Bar Graph

Bar charts are mainly used to display and compare data values. Besides, bar graphs are the most common types used across industries since they are easy to create and interpret. Once you have gathered your survey data, you can decide to visualize it using a bar graph to enhance readability and generate insights more easily. 

Suppose you have been surveying to evaluate the state of the market regarding a particular product or service. In that case, you can utilize a bar graph to point out differences and similarities between the data you generate before making a conclusion.

2. Line Graph

Suppose you have conducted research to identify patterns and trends within the industry. In that case, a line graph is the best option to visualize and point out any form of patterns existing within the market. It gives you a chance to uncover patterns and changes regardless of how small they might be.

3. Pie Chart

A pie chart is one of the most popular charts existing in the field of data analysis. It is precise and straightforward to read, thus making your work easier. This chart is partitioned with slices that can represent different aspects depending on the survey data you intend to present to your audience. You can categorize your data values with different figures, making its interpretation easier and faster.


Survey charts give business managers the power to uncover hidden trends and patterns after surveying a visual format. Business managers who tend to use visual data make 74% more accurate decisions than those who haven't implemented this trick. This compliments the power of conducting a survey for your business and using data visualization to present the survey findings.
