Survey: Support for Biometrics, but Concern over Cost, Abuses

TNS survey says most citizens support roll-out of biometric-enabled documents


The TNS/TRUSTe survey was conducted online in March 2005 in the U.S. and was fielded in Canada in May. E-mail invitations were sent to a nationally representative sample of the TNS NFO Internet Access panel, comprised of more than one million U.S. households who have agreed to participate in survey research from time to time. In total, 1,003 online interviews were completed and the survey results are considered accurate to within three percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
