Methodology For This Study

Our methodology for this study involved reviewing self-reported monthly from over two million EverQuote users. Using this data, along with the users reported ZIP codes and current auto insurance companies, we produced the analysis you see above. It’s important to remember that many factors influence the final car insurance rate, including the age and gender of a driver. To ensure we had a fair comparison of our premium numbers, we compared a subset of users who were similar to each other.
