The study examined three dozen merchandise categories using a survey of over 2500 consumers who purchased or planned to purchase those categories. It also used point-of-sale data from 2016 to 2019, examining the impact of price increases on categories that had already been subject to tariffs.
Increased tariffs on games and books (see "Game, Books, Periodicals, Toys Targeted in New Round of China Tariffs") have been delayed for now, but this study paints a darker picture of the potential impact if and when they do take effect.
