This online survey of 910 adults in South Africa was conducted 5–17 March 2021 by TransUnion in partnership with third-party research provider, Qualtrics® Research-Services. Adults 18 years of age and older residing in South Africa were surveyed using an online research panel method across a combination of computer, mobile and tablet devices. Survey questions were administered in English. To ensure the general population sample representativeness across South African resident demographics, the survey included quotas to balance responses to the population statistics on the dimensions of age, gender, household income and region. These research results are unweighted and statistically significant at a 95% confidence level within ±3.25% percentage points based on a calculated error margin.
