What Counts as a Pageview?

Any page where you place ethnio code tracks the number of views to that page, and counts as a pageview everytime someone loads that page. It still counts even if your ethnio screener is turned "off". This is because we get a hit to our server even if the screener is off, and it creates massive traffic for us cumulatively.

What's a Response?

Any time someone fills out a screener and hits "submit", it counts as a response. Ethnio automatically does *not* count responses with more than 3 blank answers or submissions entered from your preview to your total. We used to call this "recruits", but that confused everyone.

Incentive Management

We’re excited to be able to automatically pay your participant incentives - of the amount you choose - directly from ethnio. Any participant that you mark as "complete" will show up in incentives and you can batch send payment directly from Amazon with a custom message.


Ethnio servers live in an SAS Type 2 audited facility in Dallas, with fingerprint scanners and no wireless access. The application follows all industry best practices, such as encrypted passwords in the MYSQL database that not even we can read, and optional HTTPS form submission.


Feel free to drop us a line by tweeting @ethnio or at or give us a shout at 415.830.3719 during California business hours. Phone is the slowest, we swear.


We use Monit, Github, and compressed JavaScript along with the latest Rails version to ensure ethnio is as blazing fast as possible. It will never interfere with the load times on any page you place it on, but we do require that it be placed as close to the closing body tag as possible to make sure that's never even an issue.

Cancel Anytime

If you just have one study to do, feel free to create an account and then downgrade to maintain access to your data. But as long as you have ethnio code on your server, you'll have to pay. That's just to maintain our infrastructure.
