Survey Cost Calculator

Here you will find a tool we’ve adapted from our internal applications. There are two tabs, one for calculating the costs of conducting survey interviews by phone and the other for calculating the costs of conducting survey interviews face-to-face. Fill in the fields with your estimates and the tool will generate a cost estimate for the data collection process. Note that it does not include the cost of preparing a survey, quality control or other tasks. The tool is purely for calculating the cost of enumerator activity to complete a survey. For questions or comments, please contact us.
