The survey was conducted online by The Harris Poll on behalf of Anomali from June 30 to July 7, 2021 among 2,021 US adults and 1,007 UK adults aged 18 and over. The raw data were weighted by the following demographic variables when necessary to reflect the general adult population as follows: age, sex, education, region, race, household size and marital status. Propensity score weighting was also used to adjust respondents’ propensity to be online. This online survey is not based on a probability sample and therefore no estimate of theoretical sampling error can be calculated.
