BlogHer’s most recent study explores how women use social media to help make decisions during the car purchasing cycle.
In order to have a robust sample, the survey was fielded across two different populations online:
The BlogHer network (26 million women)
Total U.S. Online in 7 markets (Atlanta, Boston, NY, Chicago, Dallas, San Diego, Portland)
1,090 total women aged 18-76
377 total men aged 18-76
