"With all of this powerful and fascinating data in our hands, it would be selfish to keep it all to ourselves." - John Dick, CivicScience CEO
Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) June 11, 2014
CivicScience, Inc., the provider of the intelligent polling and real-time consumer insights platform, the InsightStore™, today announced the release of its first-ever e-book titled, “101 Cool Consumer Insights.” Just in time for summer reading season, the e-book is available for immediate download for free from the CivicScience website.
101 Cool Consumer Insights is a compilation of various research outputs generated by the CivicScience InsightStore™, which aggregates the opinions of over 27 million anonymous respondents who have engaged in the company’s syndicated micro-surveys that cycle through thousands of active questions each day, using automated data science and data mining to cross-tabulate and correlate respondent segments. Over 90% of the respondents are U.S.-based.
In the e-book, readers will see how consumers answered survey questions asking, for example, who are more likely to turn out for a Starbucks happy hour; what consumers think about using credit cards at Target; which brands are favored more among Twitter users; and which casual dining chains have the biggest sports fans. The e-book’s insights span topics such as: health and lifestyle behaviors; media consumption attitudes; social media preferences; financial practices; consumer reaction to business news; brand alignments; celebrity sentiment; sports fandom; and more.
“Of all the things I love about working at CivicScience, having this capability at our disposal is near the top of the list. I can’t tell you how many hours I’ve spent just exploring our platform to discover new inspiration for blog posts, client ideas, and small-talk fodder,” said John Dick, CEO and co-founder of CivicScience. “Naturally, one of our goals at CivicScience and through this e-book is to show off the depth and breadth of insights in our system. But it’s also designed to share useful information with the world. With all of this powerful and fascinating data in our hands, it would be selfish to keep it all to ourselves.”
Additional favorite insights from the e-book among CivicScience employees include:
- People who say they are much shorter than others are 50% more likely to say they have trouble falling asleep every night or most nights.
- Watching TV via online streaming is more likely to be used by 18-24 year olds, women, and those living in the Western U.S.
- The list of insights that might help one win more games of Rock, Paper, Scissors.

CivicScience respondents are always kept anonymous, even to CivicScience; respondents must be 13 years of age or older; and only aggregated response data is used in the company’s products and services.
