Pricing of the Compensation Data

This dataset is available at affordable rates. For a range of five years, we charge Rs. 1000 for each of the Compensation variables per 100 companies. See the following example of data pricing:

Fee Calculation Example:

As an example, please consider a data order of 5 variables for 5 years and 100 firms.

Variables needed: (1) CEO Total Compensation (2) CEO Bonuses (3) CEO Managerial Compensation (4) Per Director Total Compensation (5) Per Excecutive Total compensation

Data Years: 2014 – 2018

Since the data fee is Rs. 1000 per variable for 5 years and 100 firms, the fee is Rs. 1000 x 5 Variables = Rs. 5,000. If the order is for 200 firms, the fee would double by a factor of 2, i.e. Rs. 10,000. Similarly, if the order is for 10 variables, 10 years, and 200 firms, the fee would be:
Rs. 20,000 = Rs. 1000 per variable x 10 variables x 10 years / 5
