What is Simmons Insights

Simmons Insights is an application used by marketers to target their marketing campaigns. It looks at US adult consumers and queries them about their demographics, attitudes, purchasing habits and media habits. 

All surveys use questions and answers. Your distinct disadvantage is that you have never seen the survey, so you do not know the questions and how they are catergorized. 

This LibGuide will guide you through the basics of using Simmons Insights.
