Survey: Americans Find Unwanted Mail Solicitations Irritating
The survey reveled that irritation level is related to age, income and education. For example:
* 63 percent of those 65 and over and 58 percent of those aged 55-64, said junk mail irritates them a lot. But only 34 percent of those aged 18-24 and 40 percent of those 25-34, expressed this degree of irritation.
* 83 percent of those with household incomes of at least $50,000 -- but only 71 percent of those with incomes under $25,000 -- said junk mail irritates them a lot or a little.
* 81 percent of those with a college degree said junk mail irritates them a lot or a little but only 65 percent of those without a high school degree were similarly bothered.
