Enter the survey word count and the total number of rows into the Survey Length Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Survey Length.

## Survey Length Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Survey Length.

SUR = (W/5 + R*1.8) / 60

• Where SUR is the Survey Length (minutes)
• W is the survey word count
• R is the total number of rows

## How to Calculate Survey Length?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Survey Length.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the survey word count.
• The survey word count is given as: 1000.
2. Next, determine the total number of rows.
• The total number of rows is provided as: 50.
3. Finally, calculate the Survey Length using the equation above:

SUR = (W/5 + R*1.8) / 60

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

SUR = (1000/5 + 50*1.8) / 60 = 4.83 (minutes)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

survey word count = 1000

total number of rows = 30
