As a private user, may I purchase a paid account?

How can I access Statista at college?
At many universities, Statista access is provided for students throughout the entire campus. If your campus does not have access, please contact your university library or provide your information through a Campus Request with Statista. We will then inform your library of your interest.
Why is "Campus License" integrated into the top left of the website for me?
Your university has enabled Statista services for the entire campus. This allows full access to all statistics and furthermore all studies and reports within the Statista study database, if accessed over the university network. More information on the Statista Campus License can be found under the page Universities, Libraries & Education.
How long are the account subscriptions valid?
Both the Starter and Professional Account have a duration period of 12 months. Failure to terminate the subscriptions for these accounts will result in an automatic extension of services beyond the initial 12 month time period. For additional information, please refer to the link Prices & Access.
My account is no longer working. What happened?
We reserve the right to delete accounts that have not been used for a long time. Please sign up to create a new account.
How should I formulate my password?
Passwords are more secure when they are long (at least 8 characters) and “unreadable”. An indication of optimal password design can be found on the Microsoft website. Please bear in mind that you afford yourself a higher degree of protection when you do not use the same password for different services across the network. In order to meet the password requirements established for the Statista platform, the selected password must contain at least the following: - 12 characters or more - one number - one special character (!%&@#$^*?_~)
To request cancellation of your Starter Account subscription, please open the menu "Account Details" and click on the link "Cancel account". You will need to complete a very short form with three steps. After you have submitted the cancellation request form, our Customer Service team will be notified, and you will receive an email from them confirming your cancellation.
May I have a refund?
A great portion of our content is freely accessible with our basic account. Alternatively, our paid accounts offer a more extensive range of content beyond what is available with the basic account. Due to the digital nature of our products and the immediate access to our content by subscription, we cannot offer refunds after a product has been purchased or downloaded. If you have any questions about which subscription plan is right for you and your business, please feel free to contact one of our experts (email@example.com) prior to purchase. Refunds may be granted only in absolutely exceptional cases and at the discretion of management.
Are the published surveys and polls fully representative?
For details on the origin and quality of a statistic, please reference the information box located directly underneath the statistic. This box includes all available information on the data provided by the source.
The data is gathered from over 22,500 sources, including studies, scientific journals, official communications, trade reports, books, and other relevant statistical publications. You can find ‘Source’ and ‘More Information’ in the information boxes next to a specific statistic.
You can find information about the release/publication date and the period in which the data was collected in the ‘Source‘ and ‘More Information’ boxes next to the statistic.
Does the data change over time?
For most topics, only the latest statistics are published. If you are searching for statistics on a particular time period, you may sort the results by clicking "date of publication" in the "sort by" filter located directly underneath the search field. You may also filter using the options on the lower left of the search results. The most recent statistics will be presented first, as well as information on the content and age groups of the data (for example, Pennsylvania, ages 18-24). Additional information may be found in the "More Information" box next to the statistic.
How do you proceed with the publication of data by third parties?
We proceed like other comparable editorial or scientific publications, e.g. specialist magazines, compendia, or encyclopedias. All data are researched, assessed, selected, and processed. In contrast to other traditional publication types, however, there is no textual description. Instead, only the data themselves are quoted, and detailed information on the source of the data is provided. In the case of online sources, the source of the data is usually not only indicated but can also be accessed directly via a link. As with other editorial offers, some of the researched content is available for free and some can only be accessed by paying users. If you have any questions with regard to data publication, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are studies evaluated first?
Yes, for all studies, the information is first evaluated before publication.
Why is it noted for some questions/surveys that “Analysis has been conducted by the Department of Marketing and Media Management of the University of Hamburg” ?
Not all studies are currently available with evaluated and analyzed results. The results of some surveys must first be calculated based on primary data – for example, oversampling, which may cause some surveyed groups to be disproportionately represented. Therefore, some calculations and analysis are conducted in cooperation with the Department of Marketing and Media Management of the University of Hamburg. This cooperation ensures the quality of information according to widely accepted and recognized scientific standards.
Where can I find detailed information about the data?
Below each statistic, you can find information as to who has published the above data, who was surveyed in the process of collecting the data and what the respective group of respondents was questioned about (e.g. aged 18 or over, Germany). You can use the buttons "Description", "Source" and "More info" to show or hide detailed information on a particular statistic.
Why can't I find download options for a particular statistic?
The Statista platform allows content to be downloaded in image format (JPG), Powerpoint format or Excel format (Starter Account or Professional Account required).
Our download service is updated regularly.
In the box "Download" on the right side of the statistic, you may view all available download options. Regular updates are made to our download service. For recently added statistics, not all download options may be available until the files are uploaded.
Our statistics on specific target groups are available via the search function by selecting ‘Topics’ or ‘Studies & Reports’ on the left side of the search results.
If you require the detailed research and evaluation of a specific target group, our Research & Analysis service can provide customized, in-depth solutions and information. We will provide you with all relevant information on a target group, as well as analysis, if possible.
Similar to other editorial or scientific publications (e.g. magazines, encyclopedias, compendiums), our data is first researched, evaluated, and then prepared for release; however, unlike other traditional forms of publication, we do not provide a textual description. Instead, we reproduce the data graphically. The original source of the data is provided, as well as a direct link in the case of online sources.

Interview phase: Are we a good match? In this phase, you will get to know your department head and possibly other peers in one or two detailed interviews. We may also ask you to prepare a case study for this phase. If this should apply to you we will of course inform you about this in advance.
We will discuss the specifics of your process during the initial interview and, of course, keep you informed of all steps at all times. The entire process can take between two and four weeks. However, we will of course make every effort to give you feedback as quickly as possible at all stages.
How long does the application process take?
The duration of the entire process depends on a variety of factors - such as the number of interviews and the joint coordination of appointments - so we can't tell you exactly how long the application process will take in your case. On average, it takes between two and four weeks from the time we receive your application for both sides to decide whether we are a good match.

However, we also offer fully remote working for some positions. You can find out if this is an option for your particular job in the corresponding job description.
