Understanding the data from GetSurvey API request

When retrieving API data from the 'Get Survey' request (https://api.qualtrics.com/reference#get-survey) it should be noted that the 'responseCounts' values do not directly relate to the number of responses shown in the survey Data & Analysis list. To calculate the number of responses currently saved in a survey, you would need to use the formula:

(auditable + generated) - deleted

For example, if your responseCounts looks like...

    "responseCounts": {
          "auditable": 15,
          "generated": 0,
          "deleted": 6

...then the number of current responses saved in Qualtrics would equal 9. (The 'auditable' number DOES NOT decrement when deleting responses the survey)
