"This census was conducted online from March, 2010 through July, 2010 and received over 7500 individual responses from Retrevo users distributed across gender, age, and location. Questions were related to the ownership and usage of the following product categories: TVs, computers, cell phones, home theater electronics, cameras and camcorders, and other consumer electronics. Responses were weighted based on reported demographics to gain accurate estimations of gadget ownership and usage within and across demographics. All data is therefore reported as weighted data in which most responses have a confidence interval of +/- 4% at a 95% confidence level."
