METRICS: Online Buyers Worried About Credit Card Data

Among American consumers age 18 and over, 92.4 per cent were either somewhat or very or extremely concerned about the security of their credit card information when purchasing online in 2002. That’s a slight decrease from 2001, when 94.4 per cent said they were somewhat or very or extremely concerned. However, concern among consumers about access to their personal information when purchasing online dropped significantly between 2001 and 2002, with 88.8 per cent of persons age 16 or over expressing some concern in 2002, as opposed to 94.6 per cent the year before.
