About the M.O.O.D. of America Survey

Lincoln Financial’s 2014 M.O.O.D. of America Survey is the third in a series where the company has polled Americans on various topics, including financial attitudes and behaviors. Results for the current M.O.O.D. of America Survey are based on online research conducted by Whitman Insight Strategies (WINS), on behalf of Lincoln Financial Group. The research was conducted in late March 2014, among 2,352 adults 18 years of age and older across the United States.

The margin of error is +/- 1.9% at the 95% confidence interval for the entire sample. The sample was weighted by gender, age, region, race and ethnicity. Demographic weighting targets are based on the 2010 U.S. Census figures for adults 18 years of age and older.
