The Radio One-Edison Research National Survey is a national study of Americans age 18 years and older. The survey was conducted online from July 15th – 18th, 2016. A total of 1,505 interviews were conducted. The black population was oversampled in the study (517 interviews) to allow for in-depth analysis of that group. Sample for the online survey was provided by Survey Sampling International (SSI). The data was weighted to match the most recent United States population estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau for age, gender, race, income, education and region of the country.
