COVID-19: PULSE OF THE CONSUMER

Keeping the Pulse of the Consumer and COVID-19 

COVID-19 has just begun and already the business impact is felt. Now, more than ever, it is vital that businesses connect and understand their consumers – what they are going through, what they need, and how they feel.

At ENGINE, we have the real-time pulse of the consumer, today, and always. Throughout this pandemic we will be offering weekly insights from identifying important data points and trends from the voice of the consumer.

These Online CARAVAN® omnibus surveys were conducted March 13-15 and March 16-17, 2020. Approximately 1000 adults selected from opt-in panels were surveyed each time. The results are also weighted to U.S. Census data to be demographically representative. 

Key Findings as of March 17, 2020:
