Consumer Views and Behavior Relating to Light Bulbs: Findings of a National Survey

In June 2016, ORC International surveyed, for the Consumer Federation of America, 1,007 representative adult Americans about their views and behavior related to socket light bulbs typically used in their homes.

The survey data indicate that information is important in consumer decisions about light bulb purchase and use:  The more knowledgeable consumers say they are, the more likely they are to use LEDs and the more likely they are to say they will purchase LEDs in the future.
