This online survey of 2,063 adults was conducted May 4 – 5, 2020, by TransUnion in partnership with 3rd party research provider Qualtrics® Research-Services. Adults 18 years of age and older residing in the United States were surveyed using an online research panel method across a combination of computer, mobile and tablet devices. Survey questions were administered in English. All states are represented in the study survey responses. To ensure general population sample representativeness across United States resident demographics, the survey included quotas to balance responses to the census statistics on the dimensions of age, gender, household income, race and region. These research results are unweighted and statistically significant at a 95% confidence level within ±2.16 percentage points based on calculated error margin.
