Survey MethodologyThis survey was conducted online within the United States between January 29th and 31st, 2013, among 2,109 adults (aged 18 and over) by Harris Interactive on behalf of RPR Marketing Communications via its Quick Query omnibus product. Figures for age, sex, race/ethnicity, education, region and household income were weighted where necessary to bring them into line with their actual proportions in the U.S. population. Propensity score weighting was used to adjust for respondents' propensity to be online.
Respondents for this survey were selected from among those who have agreed to participate in Harris Interactive surveys. The data have been weighted to reflect the composition of the U.S. adult population. Because the sample is based on those who agreed to participate in the Harris Interactive panel, no estimates of theoretical sampling error can be calculated. For complete survey methodology, including weighting variables, please contact Erica Sperling at Rpr Marketing Communications.
