Methodology For This Study

To produce this study, EverQuote collected self-reported monthly premiums from over two million users looking to save money on car insurance. This data, along with those users' current auto insurance companies and ZIP codes at the time of the entry, allowed us to analyze the data that you see above. EverQuote users do differ from one another in many ways that can influence the overall price of car insurance. A motorist’s age and gender, as well as the number of motorists and cars in a household, are just a few of factors that can change the cost of car insurance. We worked to ensure a logical comparison of our numbers by comparing the premiums reported by a subset of users who are alike.
