Measures

A measure is a way to define data that captures relevant information. For example, a demographic measure is a question or group of questions that defines someone’s age, gender, location and so on. A single measure can vary from one question (e.g., ‘What is your age?) to dozens of questions (e.g., complex psychiatric scales). SIS does not charge for measures because we select ones that are generally open access and free to use. We only charge for the cost of adding measures to instruments and data visualizations.
