Methodology:

The data was collected from an online survey of 5,000 UK consumers during January 2015. Quotas were set to mirror the UK population for age, income, gender, ethnicity, and geographic regions.

The Temkin Forgiveness Ratings are based on asking consumers the following question about companies with whom they’ve interacted during the previous 60 days: “How likely are you to forgive these companies if they deliver a bad experience?” Potential responses range from 1= “Extremely unlikely” to 7= “Extremely likely.” Temkin Forgiveness Rating for a company 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.
