The Life Insurance Gap Study was conducted by The Futures Company from April 24 to May 1, 2013 through online surveys of 1,410 adults who had household income of $35,000 or more, and household decision-making power. Of those respondents, 1,004 online surveys were given to participants who had at least $50,000 in household income and were married or had dependents. This sample mirrored the demographics of the 2008 study.
