Skip Logic is another name for conditional branching. It means that if a respondent answers a question in a certain way then they can automatically “Skip” certain questions within the survey. This can be best explained by example:

# Question Answer Answer
1 Are you planning a vacation in the next 6 months? Yes No
2 Is this a family vacation? Yes No
3 Will you bring any pets? Yes No
4 Do all those travelling have passports? Yes No
5 Are you planning on buying a new house in the next  6 months? Yes No

 

If a respondent answers “Yes” to the first questions, “Are you planning a vacation in the next 6 months”, then questions 2-4 are very relevant.  If on the other hand the respondent answers “No” to the first question then there is no reason to even display questions 2-4.  Rather that respondent automatically “Skips” to question # 5.
