About the study

These are the findings from two online surveys conducted between August 29 – September 26, 2021 by Ipsos on behalf of Udacity. The two surveys were defined as:

  • A sample of 2,008 employed adults working in managerial roles or higher from the U.S. (502), the U.K. (502), France (502), and Germany (502), across various industries, in English, French, and German, and
  • A sample of 4,006 general population adults aged 18+ — with nationally representative subsamples in the U.S. (1,002), the U.K. (1,004), France (1,000), and Germany (1,000), in English, French, and German.

The samples were randomly drawn from Ipsos’ online panel, partner online panel sources, and “river” sampling and do not rely on a population frame in the traditional sense. Ipsos uses fixed sample targets, unique to each study, in drawing a sample. After a sample has been obtained from the Ipsos panel, Ipsos calibrates respondent characteristics to be representative of the U.S. Population using standard procedures such as raking-ratio adjustments. The source of these population targets is U.S. Census 2018 American Community Survey data. The sample drawn for this study reflects fixed sample targets on demographics. For the general population group, posthoc weights were made to the population characteristics on gender, age, race/ethnicity, region, and education. 

Statistical margins of error do not apply to online non-probability polls. All sample surveys and polls may be subject to other sources of error, including, but not limited to coverage error and measurement error. Where figures do not sum to 100, this is due to the effects of rounding. The precision of Ipsos online polls is measured using a credibility interval.

In this case, the poll has a credibility interval of:

  • Managers: plus or minus 2.5 percentage points for all respondents. The credibility interval per country is plus or minus 5.0 percentage points. Ipsos calculates a design effect (DEFF) for each study based on the variation of the weights, following the formula of Kish (1965). This study had a credibility interval adjusted for the design effect of the following (n=2,008, DEFF=1.5, adjusted Confidence Interval=+/-4.0 percentage points).
  • General Population: plus or minus 1.8 percentage points for all respondents. The credibility interval per country is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. Ipsos calculates a design effect (DEFF) for each study based on the variation of the weights, following the formula of Kish (1965). This study had a credibility interval adjusted for the design effect of the following (n=4,006, DEFF=1.5, adjusted Confidence Interval=+/-3.3 percentage points).
