Cost of Living Adjustments

Follow

This is simply an international guide we've created to help researchers pick the right incentive amounts. It doesn't do anything in your incentive order. 

If you're using Ethnio to pay participants in multiple countries around the world, we've created a rough guide to the expected percentage difference in research incentive based on cost of living. This is versus USD as the base currency, and please keep in mind we're painfully aware of the cultural and geopolitical implications of saying people in one country should be paid more or less than people in another country for their participation in research. This table is based on the cost of groceries in each country, and of course it's entirely up to you to decide how much to pay your participants.

We hope you pay your participants a lot, and pay them quickly, and sure we hope you pay them using Ethnio Rewards. But again this is only meant as a guide to considering research reward amounts in other countries.
