Telephone interviews lasting approximately 20 minutes were conducted among a national U.S. sample of 600 women between the ages of 40 through 69 with household investable assets of at least $250,000. Interviewing dates were June 27 through August 4, 2013. Figures for marital status were weighted to bring them in line with their actual proportions in the population. In reading the results of this study, the general rule of thumb is that the margin of error is about 4% on the total sample and greater when looking at results for specific subgroups.
