Calculating Percentages Based on User Defined Field

OK, here's one for you!

I am creating a Facebook App using CreateSend Email List to generate the Form which asks a Question that the "visitor" must select one from a list of 3 possible answers, using the radio button option.

On submitting thier answer, the CreateSend miling list is update....all great!

However, is there a way using HTML coding to access the mailing list on CreateSend externally and do a calculation to determine the % selection of each answer from the subscribers to that list? I then want to display that percentage next to each of the answers on the form?

Or maybe there is a function / API in CreateSend already that provides this information?

I hope I have made some sense!? Any ideas, comments and even sample code!! would be most appreciated!

Thanks

Hi Niall, just to clarify, are you looking to display the percentage of subscribers from a list that have responded to a question?

This sounds like a task for our API. If you're a fairly confident coder, it is possible to do things like retrieve list statistics and then script something up in in your Facebook app - our API docs are a good place to start on a project like this.
