From the information gathered and the studies we researched, I was quite pleased at the results I had found. In nearly every case in which I was able to document and verify that the data came from a trusted source, I was discovering a near two to one ATM visitation rate between non-debit card holders and those that did possess debit cards. The extremes of the test did prove to be fascinating in showing the disparity of the data collected, and showed that even with room for error, my hypothesis was well deserved. In one case,
