** This feature is under development**. Please use the `metric`

tag as an alternative method for creating custom nets and metrics.

The **Nets & Metrics** tool enables you to add rows to a Crosstab report that provide calculated information from the survey data. This includes nets such as Top 2 Box scores and summary statistics with metrics such as median or standard deviation, among many others.

## Adding nets and metrics

**Coming soon!**

## Available nets

*Nets* (also called groups or buckets) combine the highest or lowest options from a rating scale. The following pre-defined nets are available:

**Top 2 Box**combines the results from the highest two points on a scale (e.g., a top 2 box net on a 1 to 5 scale combines the '4' and '5' responses).**Top 3 Box**combines the results from the highest three points.**Bottom 2 Box**combines the results from the lowest two points on a scale (e.g., a bottom 2 box net on a 1 to 5 scale combines the '1' and '2' responses).**Bottom 3 Box**combines the results from the lowest three points.

**Note:** If you are adding a net and selecting multiple questions, make sure the questions all share the same options.

## Available metrics

In addition to nets, the following metrics are available for Crosstab reports. As with nets, select a question on the **Nets and Metrics** editor screen, then select the metric from the list provided.

Metric | Description |

Max | The highest or maximum selected value in a numeric question. |

Min | The lowest or minimum selected value in a numeric question. |

Mean | Also known as the average, this is calculated by summing all the values and dividing by the number of values. |

Median | The value that would be in the middle if all values were in an ordered list. |

Std. Dev. | Standard deviation, also known as standard error, indicates how widely values vary from the group mean. If individual values vary considerably from the group mean, the standard deviation is large; conversely, if individual values do not vary much from the group mean, the standard deviation is small. |

Range | The difference between the largest and smallest values. |

Percentile | Uses the Nth percentile of a data set as the value at which N percent of the data is below it (e.g., 90th percentile displays the value at which 90% of the data is below it). |
