    Default Tally

    Ive found the word "Tally" many times in marketing reports where many respondents take part in interviews later processed for market research purposes, do you know exactly what it means?

    Sabrina,
    I do not know too much about marketing, however maybe these definitions can help you. I have always heard tally used to refer to a total, "lets tally up the score"

    Here are some dictionary definitions:

    to match or agree with something else:
    Our figures don't tally - you've made it twenty pounds more than me.

    tally (COUNT)

    a record or count of a number of items:
    Will you keep a tally of the number of customers going in and out?
    to calculate something

    Hope it helps!

    I agree with Emily.

    "Tally" is very much used in statistics.

    A tally chart is a grid used to help clearly show information as it is collected.

    In Spanish it is called "tabla de conteo"

    I have found the definition
    Tally: The process of checking, or taking account of the goods placed into a ship or unloaded from a ship.
    Because it reminded me of the song "Come Mr. TallyMan, tally me banana", I love that song!
