Study Methodology: Surveys were sent to IGNITE’s list of alumni and participants 18 years or older for whom we had
emails. Nine hundred forty (940) individuals completed the survey, which is a 14% response rate. For a comparison group,
the researchers contracted Qualtrics Panels to conduct an online national survey of Americans ages 18-23 (commonly
referred to as Gen Z). Quatrics collected 2250 completed surveys. The data is not a probability sample, but is weighted to
match the benchmarks developed by Pew Research Center for sex, age, race/ethnicity and income and closely resembles
the make up of the United States public for this age demographic. The data above compares the IGNITE sample to the Gen
Z sample of women.
