Estimate how much your project will cost

Access to the All of Us Researcher Workbench is free, but because data analysis occurs in the Google Cloud environment, we do require you to pay for your own compute time after all of your initial credits have been used. During Beta, each registered researcher receives $300 in initial billing credits to help pay for preliminary storage and computational costs acquired while running analyses in notebooks. If you expend all of your initial credits, please refer to this article to learn how you can create a billing account to link to your Researcher Workbench account so you can continue your research.

The specific cost of each workspace will depend on the amount of compute needed to perform your unique analysis. Below are several Featured Workspaces and total cost spent over the lifetime of that workspace (rounded to the nearest dollar), including development and testing, to get a better idea of what your project may cost.
