To see if attitudes are changing about the potential for using one's home to cover living expenses in retirement, the Center for Retirement Research commissioned a survey that examined the house as a potential source of retirement income. Harris Interactive® conducted the study online within the United States between January 24 and February 2, 2007 among 2,673 adults (aged 50-65). Figures for age, sex, race, education, household income, and region were weighted where necessary to bring them into line with their actual proportions in the population. Propensity score weighting was also used to adjust for respondents’ propensity to be online. The questionnaire, results, and raw data from both surveys are available.
