The Roper Center is the world’s largest public opinion data archive with survey data from more than 100 different countries and U.S. data from 1935 to today. Roper Center offers several different membership options, all of which support the work that we do.  We have nearly 300 members, from individuals to large commercial organizations and higher education institutions and we thank them all for their continued support. To accommodate individuals, small polling firms, researchers at academic institutions, corporations, non-profits, think tanks, media outlets and government agencies, we offer cost-effective variable pricing based on membership types.

Types of Membership

While the vast majority of our members prefer Full Access, we work with each organization to match their needs to the appropriate membership type. Please use the drop down information below to determine your preferred level of archive access and then be in touch.

Access to nearly 20,000 individual-level datasets from more than 100 different countries and nearly 800,000 questions, results, and charts from the U.S., U.K., Canada, Japan, France, and the U.S. States collection. Access to special collections, such as the USIA report collection. Discounted data conversions. U.S. data extend from 1935 to today. Demographic cross-tabs are included

Nearly 800,000 questions, results, and charts from the U.S., U.K., Canada, Japan, France and and the U.S. states. U.S. data extend from 1935 to today. Demographic cross-tabs are included.

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.

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. 

Support services to non-members or in excess of customary member
services will be billed at $150/hr and may include:

  • Custom searches
  • Data processing
  • Data conversion
  • Other services

Determine Proper Subscription Pricing

To help alleviate financial strain for our supporting members in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, membership rates will remain flat for the 2021 fiscal year. We will also apply the 5% discount for check, cash or direct deposit (already reflected in the prices below) to credit card payments through June 30, 2021. Fiscal year 2022 rates can be viewed by clicking this link and will take affect on July 1, 2021.
