ATLANTA, June 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- National house cleaning service Maid Brigade is conducting its sixth annual consumer survey to better understand domestic influencers on one's sense of personal well-being. One key research finding so far in this year's survey is that for the first time participants rate themselves a B- for personal well-being, whereas in every prior survey they rated at C+ on average. The survey is still in progress, and closes on July 1 at 12:00 pm.
The 2016 survey aims to understand the impacts of relationship status, the division of household labor and expenses, perceptions on aging, and gender have on overall well-being. One possible explanation for the slight uptick in participants' self-scores from years prior is with household chores. While most women still say they do more of the household chores, a surprising 40% say the duties are split evenly between them and their spouse or partner. And 37% of men say they are doing more than half.
"Well-being has a direct impact on quality of life," says Marie Stegner, Maid Brigade's consumer health advocate and blogger. Maid Brigade uses its survey findings to expand its understanding of its target audience and thereby maximize its contribution to improved well-being and quality of life.
Consumers who complete the online survey before July 1, 2016 at noon are automatically entered into a random drawing to win $1000 in house cleaning service from Maid Brigade or the cash equivalent if the winner lives outside the company's cleaning service area. The survey is roughly 25 questions and takes approximately 5 minutes to complete. Consumers who wish to participate in the study may access the link by visiting http://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MB-2016. Only one survey per consumer, please.
