How much does Investigator cost?

Note that the pricing below assumes that CSR collected the data that you would like to use. If you would like to use Investigator for other data, please contact us at csr@psu.edu or 717-948-4323 to discuss pricing.

How does the pricing work?

Investigator includes two types of questions in your visualization.
  • Visual Questions: Dynamic visualizations of one Main Question and three Demographic Questions (gender, age, and region). If you click on the South Central region on the map, for example, then you will see how South Central region respondents answered your Main Question. You will also see the what percentage of the respondents from that region were male and female and what percentage were in three different age categories from that region.
  • Explore Questions: These questions are not visual, but they allow you to select which groups you would like to see in the Visual Questions. For example, you could choose just respondents with a 4-year degree or graduate work. You would then see how a person with a 4-year degree or higher in terms of education answered your main question. You would also see what percentage were male and female and what percentage were in various age categories.







All pricing options below include:
  • 4 Visual Questions: One main question and three demographic questions (gender, age, and region). You can change the demographic questions that are used as visual questions, but this requires a separate cost estimate.
  • 3 Explore Questions: Up to three demographic questions of your choice.
