For DataOnDemand Users

Whether you're new to DataOnDemand (DOD) or a long-time user, we have resources to help. DOD is accessed through Surveys Online and is available from the date of purchase through January 31 of the following year. You must purchase DOD for each survey you want to access, and discounts are available for institutions that participated in the survey.

Protecting Confidentiality

Use of DOD is limited only by the five restrictions in place to protect confidentiality:
  • No salary data are linked to a given institution (other than where a user has permission to see his or her own institution’s data).
  • No salary data are reported for positions with fewer than five responding institutions.
  • A comparison group must include a minimum of eight institutions that participated in the survey.
  • Each comparison group created and used must differ by at least three institutions from all other existing and deleted comparison groups.
  • The weighted data option provides salary data only for positions with five or more responding institutions and in which all responding institutions comprise 25.0% or less of position incumbents. If a position has at least five responding institutions but one institution represents more than 25% of the incumbents, salary data is not reported.
