        About the Data: The data is based on the Shullman Luxury, Affluence and Wealth Pulse, Fall 2014 wave, conducted online between August 22 and August 27, 2014, among adults age 18 or older.

        Five sample groups (a total of 1,665 respondents) were surveyed that included a representative national sample of adults (1,003 interviews), plus four household-income segments that were targeted to obtain the following number of completed interviews, resulting in a total of 1,056 interviews among upscale consumers with household incomes of at least $75,000.

        Survey results were weighted on demographic characteristics to reflect estimates from the March 2013 Current Population Survey of the Bureau of the Census released in September 2013.
