brandreport 2011 The 2011 Contract Brand Report Awareness Survey asked Contract readers to identify their top three preferred manufacturers in each of 32 categories. This online survey utilized a random sample of subscribers, and a total of 433 respondents participated. As a quality control measure, respondents were double screened by list identification and self-reported occupation/company affiliation to restrict participants to solely architecture or design professionals in one of four types of companies: an architectural firm, a design firm, a firm providing both architectural and design services, or a corporate architectural or design function (not affiliated with an indust manufacturing or distribution company). Readers were asked to comment only on categories with which they have familiarity. Due to the breadth of the survey, not all respondents answered eve catego . All replies were unaided, and no brand name prompts or lists were provided to ensure unbiased responses. This survey, administered by Aspen Media and Market Research, provides a statistically valid comparison of results for the 2011 Contract Brand Report Awareness Survey with an overall margin of error of +/- 4.8 percent at the 95 percent confidence level.
