Supplementary notes

According to the source, "[u]pper-income Americans are the consumers who have the disposable income to spend if they so chose and they have been holding back given the uncertainties surrounding the future course of the economy and, possibly, government tax policies. By increasing tax certainty for the next two years, the new legislation might have encouraged these better-off consumers to feel more comfortable spending more freely during Christmas week. The "wealth effects" associated with increasing stock values on Wall Street may have also encouraged upper-income spending late this year."

Results are based on telephone interviews conducted as part of the Gallup Daily tracking survey during the week ending Dec. 26, 2010, with a random sample of 2,464 adults, with weekly random samples of about 3,000 adults for each of the first three weeks of December, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia, selected using random-digit-dial sampling.

2010 data based in weeks ending Dec 5, Dec 12, Dec 19, and Dec 26.
2009 data based in weeks ending Dec 6, Dec 13, Dec 20, and Dec 20-22.
