SETVALUE with Quotas

Hello all,
I would like to use quotas to record the number of respondents who get to a certain question along demographic lines (gender, age, region), however I expect most respondents to disqualify after answering the question.

Given that Quotas only record a value if a respondent qualifies and completes the survey I was hoping to use SETVALUE statements to manually add to the Quota once a respondent reaches a certain point. However the SETVALUE function does not appear to work with setting quota values.

Is anyone aware of a way to manually add respondents to qualify for a quota cell even if that respondent disqualifies for the full survey?

Thank you!

We do create separate custom reporting to show census balancing. Another way, to use Data->Reports to get current count on all.

Sorry, a quota spot is only officially used when someone hits a terminate/link page set to Qualified Complete after having passed through the quota.
