2 Introduction and Methodology Introduction and Methodology The purpose of this study was to evaluate holiday shopping behavior and perceptions for the holiday season, with a specific focus on beliefs and planned usage of malls. Specific research objectives were to: Measure attitudes toward holiday shopping and shopping specifically at malls Determine most popular shopping days and usage of traditional and online shopping on these days Identify store types and method of shopping at these stores during the holidays Identify most popular gift categories Evaluate most wanted holiday gift categories Measure children s holiday wants and usage of wish lists Determine support of social and charitable causes during the holidays Evaluate similarities and differences between key demographic segments To meet those objectives, Russell Research, an independent survey research firm, conducted online interviews with,8 respondents. In order to qualify for study inclusion, respondents were screened to meet the following criteria: Female, Male Ages 8 or older National Representation Purchase holiday gifts for or more people Interviews were conducted online from September 8,. Findings for the total sample are projectable to the universe of online adults. At a 9 percent confidence level, a margin of sample error of +/. percent applies to the sample.

3 Statistical Notation Statistical Notation The statistical significance of a result in this survey is the probability that the observed relationship (e.g., between variables) or a difference (e.g., between means) in a sample occurred by pure chance, and that in the population from which the sample was drawn, no such relationship or differences exist. Using less technical terms, one could say that the statistical significance of a result tells us something about the degree to which the result is "true". More technically, the value of the pvalue represents a decreasing index of the reliability of a result. The higher the pvalue, the less we can believe that the observed relation between variables in the sample is a reliable indicator of the relation between the respective variables in the population. Specifically, the pvalue represents the probability of error that is involved in accepting our observed result as valid, that is, as "representative of the population." For example, a pvalue of. (i.e.,/) indicates that there is a probability that the relation between the variables found in our sample is a "fluke." The following statistical notations are used throughout the report: = Indicates figure is significantly higher than other subgroup at a 9 confidence level (i.e. pvalue of. or less).
