The Roper Center has several different levels of membership to accommodate researchers at academic institutions, corporations, non-profits and government agencies. Worldwide, there are more than 280 institutional members whose staff, faculty and students are accessing datasets from hundreds of survey organizations from across the US and the globe.

Membership requires a signed agreement and offers unlimited access to all data archived at the Center, including all datasets — US, international, individual state polls, and special sample surveys  — as well as the US question databank.  All research tools are available to members: iPOLL with iPOLLPlus, RoperExpress, and the RoperExplorer online analysis tool. Additionally, members benefit from custom dataset reformatting, analytical consultation, webinar and other support services, and more.
Annual Membership with iPOLL Dues: $1,270-6,600

Subscription to iPOLL. This option is for the user  whose data requirements include only US public opinion topline results, with some recent subgroup analysis. This service is offered as a Single User License, although additional user licenses may be purchased. Subscribe today.
Annual iPOLL Subscription: $2,575

Non-member Dataset Access. Individuals who rarely require more than one or two datasets over a long period of time may prefer to purchase such access on an “as needed” basis. Single datasets may be acquired or in the case of the National Election Pool’s Exit Polls, bundled packages are available. Non-members who subscribe to iPOLL with a single user license may also purchase access to individual datasets at a per-study fee.
Per study pricing: $450-1,600

Custom Research Services. For those researchers who need extra support, the “researcher for hire” option is available. Custom research services are available for projects that do not require a fast turnaround. Research staff provide a cost quotation prior to engaging in the project.
