III. Methodology and Limitations
To collect the data shown above, we surveyed 1014 respondents who live in the United States. An attention-checker question was included to ensure the participants did not mindlessly answer questions.
Because the survey relies on self-reporting, issues such as telescoping and exaggeration can influence responses. Please also note that this survey’s results do not reflect our opinions.
