According to Lexis Nexis during the first quarter of 2014, they commissioned an independent firm to conduct two studies. The first was a study of 2,000 insured consumer drivers, ages 21-74, who were the policy decision makers for their household. The results of the study were compared to similar research LexisNexis had conducted in 2010 and 2013.
