Opportunities of the method

Often a brief but insightful overview of the market in a particular region is required. Most often, this is in demand by potential investors or companies making a decision about a new distributor in the region or opening their own representative office.

Sample size and timeline

The minimum size of a representative sample for surveys within the framework of such projects per region is 800 questionnaires. By region we mean any territory for which separate analytics is required (this could be, for example, a city or country). In cases where it is necessary to separately consider and compare data from, for example, 2 cities, the minimum sample is 1600 questionnaires. The minimum period for surveying this quantity is 1 business day.


The cost of a project to analyze market development in the region consists of the cost of desk research (depending on the market), collection of a selected number of questionnaires (fees are charged only for fully completed questionnaires) and the cost of analytics (usually no more than 15% of the cost of data collection)

You can calculate the cost of one questionnaire yourself using our calculator (you will need to enter the number of open and closed questions in the questionnaire, quotas)

The cost of such a study is from 2000 £ (the cost is indicated for a minimum sample).
