Fewer Americans than ever say they are going out to eat less often than they were six months ago.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 41% of American Adults say they are dining out at a restaurant less often compared to six months ago. Only five percent (5%) say they are going out to eat more often, while a majority (53%) is dining out about the same as they were six months ago.
The survey of 1,000 Adults nationwide was conducted on July 30-31, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC.
