Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best Likert scale for a survey?

The most popular Likert scale for survey is 5-point and 7-point. However, it is vital to note that: 

  • When seeking opinions, it can be helpful to use an even number of options in your response scale to create a “forced choice”.
  • When asking for a response regarding fact, it is fine to use either an odd or even response option because there is no “neutral”.

How do you analyze data using a Likert scale?

The Likert scale data can be treated as interval data, which means that the mean is the most appropriate measure of central tendency. To describe the scale, we can use means and standard deviations. The mean represents the average score on the scale, while the standard deviation represents the amount of variation in the scores.

Why do we use the 5-point Likert scale?

A 5-point Likert scale is advantageous for survey questions. Respondents can easily answer questions without much effort since the answers are already provided. The format is easy to analyze and widely used, making it a reliable way to collect data.
