Results were collected via online surveys of 1,000 participants age 18 and above. The RMSE score for 1,000 is +/- 5.0.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. 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.
