This survey was conducted online within the United States on behalf of Cutera by Harris Interactive from March 19 – 24, 2010, via the QuickQuery(SM) online omnibus service. The demographic questions in the survey (including the age determining question) was shown in two waves of the survey to a total of 4,598 adults ages 18+ of whom 2,424 were women ages 18+. Based on the answers to this question, 934 women were interviewed for the Milestone Birthday survey, of whom 183 are ages 25-29, 223 are ages 35-39, 277 are ages 45-49 and 251 are ages 55-59.
Results were weighted as needed to reflect the composition of the U.S. adult population using targets for region, age within gender, education, household income, and race/ethnicity. Propensity score weighting was also used to adjust for respondents' propensity to be online. This online survey is not based on a probability sample and therefore no estimate of theoretical sampling error can be calculated. For complete survey methodology, including weighting variables, please contact Liz Mefford.
