Simmons Catalyst: Overview

What is Simmons Catalyst?

A long-running, nationally-representative, large-scale (50,000 respondents) survey of all adults ages 18 and up in the contiguous United States. It is a standard tool used by a large majority of advertising and marketing professionals to learn about consumer preferences.

Because Simmons is nationally-representative, marketers and advertisers can use the data to make projections about the U.S. national consumer population.
