The report was based on data from a survey of 1,000 consumers in the United States.
Some 56% of consumers say Amazon demonstrates an understanding of their individual preferences and needs on a regular basis; in contrast, just 25% of respondents say the same about traditional retailers.
Below, additional key findings from the report.
