About the Research
The Netflix New Year's Eve Survey was conducted online by SurveyMonkey Audience on behalf of Netflix from December 4-15, 2015. A sample of 9,128 parents in the US, UK, France, Canada, Australia, Brazil, Italy, Spain, and Mexico were interviewed and must have had at least one child age 12 or under in the household to qualify for the survey. The precision of SurveyMonkey Audience online surveys is measured by margin of error. The margin of error on these results is 1.03% based on a confidence interval of 95%.
