This Xcelerant Survey was conducted online by Directions Research, independently recognized as one of the nation's leading business decision insight firms. The survey was fielded from April 25 to May 6, 2022, among a demographically balanced nationally representative sample of 1,266 U.S. adults 50 years of age and older who have sole or shared financial decision-making responsibility for their household, are retired or plan to retire, and own financial products valued at $10,000 or more.
To ensure consistent and accurate representation of the U.S. general population 50 years of age and older, data are weighted to match the U.S. Census data by the following variables: sex, age, geographic region, race/ethnicity, and education. Weighting factors for each respondent are developed through a custom algorithm.
