Since April 2020, Ipsos has conducted a biweekly survey about consumer attitudes on a wide range of topics, including COVID-19, the economy, and current events.

The latest wave of the Ipsos Consumer Tracker finds that 29% of Americans report having to cut back their spending on dining out. Additionally, 8% say they currently are not dining out but hope to in a few months. Women (34%) and those earning under $50K (37%) are more likely than their counterparts to report cutting back on this activity.

Americans are significantly more likely to reduce their spending on dining out than on other activities. Fewer than two in five report cutting back on subscribing to streaming (15%), attending concerts or sporting events (14%), and taking vacations by car (11%) or plane (10%).

The poll also finds two in three Americans (69%) are likely to take a vacation this summer that allows them to “unplug” and “get away from it all”. A similar percentage say they are likely to take overnight trips by car more than (71%) and less than (69%) 100 miles away. In terms of other summer activities, 65% plan to go to a movie theater, and a majority say the same of outdoor concerts (57%), sporting events (55%), and indoor concerts (52%).

This wave’s tracker also explores American public opinion on current events, AI in the workplace, and purchasing attitudes.

The sample for this study was randomly drawn from Ipsos’ online panel (see link for more info on “Access Panels and Recruitment”), partner online panel sources, and “river” sampling (see link for more info on the Ipsos “Ampario Overview” sample method) and does 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 2019 American Community Survey data. The sample drawn for this study reflects fixed sample targets on demographics. Posthoc weights were made to the population characteristics on gender, age, race/ethnicity, region, and education.

Statistical margins of error are not applicable 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 plus or minus 3.6 percentage points for all respondents. Ipsos calculated 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 design effect of the following (n=1,081, DEFF=1.5, adjusted Confidence Interval=+/-5.1 percentage points.)
