Methodology for Ipsos Survey
These are some of the findings of an Ipsos poll conducted April 26–30, 2012. For the survey, national samples of 1,009 adults aged 18 and older from Ipsos’ U.S. online panel were interviewed online, including 385 mothers of a child of any age. Weighting was then employed to balance demographics and ensure that the sample’s composition reflects that of the U.S. adult population according to Census data and to provide results intended to approximate the sample universe. A survey with an unweighted probability sample of 1,009 and a 100% response rate would have an estimated margin of error of +/- 3.1 percentage points. All sample surveys and polls may be subject to other sources of error, including, but not limited to coverage error, and measurement error.
