Poll results were collected via online surveys of 600 residents of Texas age 18 and above. The RMSE score for 600 is 7.3. The RMSE measures the differences between the desired distribution and actual distribution for each targeted population segment and calculates a weighted average error. The RMSE technique weights large errors more than small errors. Thus, if the difference in one segment is very large, it would have a greater effect on the RMSE than if there were small errors across several segments. The lower the RMSE score, the closer we are to representing the US Internet population.
