Analyzing Survey Data with ChatGPT-4 and Code Interpreter for Nonprofits

Nonprofit organizations frequently conduct surveys to gather insights and feedback about their initiatives. With the advent of technologies like ChatGPT-4 combined with the Code Interpreter, analyzing this data has become more intuitive and dynamic. In this article, we’ll dive into how nonprofits can utilize these tools to gain deeper insights from their survey data.

Getting Started with ChatGPT-4 + Code Interpreter

To access the Code Interpreter with ChatGPT-4, follow the steps below:

  1. Upgrade to ChatGPT Plus: The plugins are not available for free accounts. Simply navigate to ChatGPT and click on the “Upgrade to Plus” option located at the bottom right corner and follow the prompts to purchase.
  1. Enable the Code Interpreter:
  • Click on your account name (bottom right corner).
  • Choose Settings.
  • In the Setting menu, opt for Beta features.
  • Toggle on the Code Interpreter. No need for activating through the ChatGPT plugin store.
  1. Select Code Interpreter Mode: When creating a new prompt, hover over GPT-4 at the top. A dropdown will appear, allowing you to switch between standard GPT-4 and the Code Interpreter powered version. Ensure the Code Interpreter is selected before starting your chat.

Uploading Data Files

When the Code Interpreter plugin is active, a small plus icon appears on the left side of the text box. This facilitates the uploading of text-based files such as Excel, Word docs, and more. Do note that ChatGPT currently can’t interpret non-text-based files like images or PDFs.

Engaging Questions for Analyzing Survey Data

Once your data is uploaded, you can start asking questions to analyze it. Here are some sample questions nonprofits might find helpful:

  • “Can you give me a summary of each column?”
  • “Based on the responses, what recommendations would you make to our fundraising team?”
  • “Can you plot responses on a map? Please color code the pins according to…”
    • “Can you zoom in on …?”
  • “How do I know if these answers are representative of our population?”
  • “Can you display each column in the most appropriate type of chart?”
  • “Can you categorize each answer in column XYZ according to its sentiment?”

Extracting Insights with ChatGPT-4

Even without the Code Interpreter, ChatGPT-4 provides advanced summarization capabilities, offering an improved “understanding” of data compared to its predecessors. To gain insights from survey data, you might use a prompt like:

Here are answers to a survey question. Please summarize the answers and highlight the major topics mentioned. For each topic, include a quote and the number of responses that mention it.


[Copy & paste survey responses directly from the spreadsheet.]

This could offer you a concise overview of the predominant topics and sentiments in your survey data.


For nonprofits aiming to make data-driven decisions, tools like ChatGPT-4 combined with the Code Interpreter are invaluable. They not only simplify the analysis process but also enable dynamic and real-time insights.

We hope you apply this in new and incredible ways for your cause!
