The 2010 Contract Brand Report Awareness Survey was ﬁelded as an Internet survey utilizing a random sample of Contract magazine subscribers. A total of 389 respondents completed the survey. Due to the breadth of the survey, not all respondents answered eve catego . As a quality control, respondents were double screened (by list identiﬁcation and self reported occupation/company aﬃliation) to restrict participants to either an architectural or design function in one of four types of companies: • architectural ﬁrm • design ﬁrm • ﬁrm providing both architectural and design services • corporate architectural or design function (not aﬃliated with an industry manufacturing or distribution company) As in previous Contract Brand Report Awareness surveys, respondents were asked to identify the top three manufactures in each of 32 categories. Respondents were instructed to respond only for categories with which they have familiarity. All responses were unaided, no brand name prompts or lists were provided to assure responses were unbiased. Responses were tabulated and reported by each of the 32 categories as total, architect, designer, both and other. This survey provides a statistically valid comparison of results for the 2010 Contract Brand Report Awareness Survey with an overall margin of error of +/- 7.8 percent at the 95 percent conﬁdence level.
