Filtering using answers to multiple-choice questions

I have a survey with several mutiple choice questions in which multiple answer selection is allowed (i.e. "Select all of the following that apply to you...").

Although I can see a spread of answer counts for each, I can't seem to do any further analysis in StatsiQ. There are two things I'd like to be able to do:

  1. Filter or relate by answer - e.g. filter out the subset of participants who chose option B (regardless of what other options they chose in the question) and/or find whether there's any relationship between choosing option B and other variables in the study
  2. Find relationships between multiple choice answers in the same question (e.g. how many participants who chose B also chose C)?

There seems to be very little way to do this in StatsiQ - my first thought was to create a new variable based on answer type but it won't let me!

Any advice? Or would I have to redo the survey in a different way?

    I might be misunderstanding your question, but would the filters in the Reports tab work for this? They seem infinitely variable. ????
