The Top 10 Findings of 2022 from Edison Research

By Edison Research

Another year has passed and we are taking a moment once again to compile a list of some of our favorite findings from some of the research that we think will have the most impact moving forward. Thanks to our research partners and everyone on the Edison Research Team who made this work possible.

This is one of our favorite webinars of the year because you get to see some of the faces behind the research! We shared these findings through webinars and in-person presentations during the year, and now we highlight our Top 10 Findings of 2022:
