The study is based on responses from more than 14,400 insurance customers who requested an auto insurance price quote from at least one competitive insurer in the past nine months, and it includes more than 38,800 unique customer evaluations of insurers. The study was fielded in April, July, and October 2018, as well as January 2019.
