Consumer data in this report come from two primary sources. The first source is the Packaged Facts National Online Consumer Survey, which includes a panel of 2,000 U.S. adults (age 18 and older) that is balanced to the national population on primary demographic measures such as age cohort, gender, geographic region, marital status, race/ethnicity, presence or absence of children in the household, and household income.
