These brands were rated using YouGov BrandIndex’s Buzz score which asks respondents, “If you've heard anything about the brand in the last two weeks, through advertising, news or word of mouth, was it positive or negative?”
Buzz scores can range from 100 to -100 and are compiled by subtracting negative feedback from positive. A zero score means equal positive and negative feedback.
The Buzz Rankings chart shows the brands with the highest average Buzz scores between January and December of 2015. Scores are representative of this segment.
All Buzz scores listed have been rounded to a single decimal place, however, we have used additional precision to assign ranks.
