The data was collected from an online survey of 10,000 U.S. consumers during January 2016. Quotas were set to mirror the U.S. census data for age, income, gender, ethnicity, and geographic regions of the U.S. population.

The Temkin Web Experience Ratings are based on asking consumers the following question about companies with whom they’ve interacted with online during the previous 60 days: Thinking back to your most recent interaction with the websites of these companies, how satisfied were you with the experience?  Consumers answered the question on a scale from 1= “Very dissatisfied” to 7= “Very satisfied.” Temkin Web Experience Ratings is calculated by taking the percentages of consumers who respond with a 6 or 7 and subtracting the percentage who responded with 1, 2, or 3.
