Here's one that fits the model nicely.
A recent poll finds that many Americans feel that life insurance rates are much higher than they actually are.The foundation is, obviously, tied to life insurance.
After conducting a survey of more than 2,000 people, the nonprofit LIFE Foundation and LIMRA found that the average conusmer (sic) thought that a healthy 30-year old consumer would pay $400 per year for a $250,000 20-year term life insurance policy.
While each case is different, the groups said that the actual cost is closer to $150 annually. Younger consumers - who likely qualify for the lowest rates - had even more inflated price expectations.
I'm not saying there's anything necessarily wrong with this. Who better to point out how little people know about your topic than yourself? It's just amusing because I run across so many of these. On the good side, it keeps survey firms employed.
