International in scope, the survey continues to focus on consumers between the ages of 14 and 75 from countries like Brazil, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States, South Korea and India.

Conducted by an independent research firm from September 11th through October 13th 2009, the latest Deloitte market study explores distinct differences among four generations.
