This web survey was conducted from July 8-10, 2022, with 1,538 Canadians and 1,002 Americans, 18 years of age or older, randomly recruited from LEO’s online panel.
A margin of error cannot be associated with a non-probability sample in a panel survey. For comparison, a probability sample of 1,538 respondents would have a margin of error of ±2.49%, 19 times out of 20, while a probability sample of 1,002 respondents would have a margin of error of ±3.09%, 19 times out of 20.
