Holiday Tipping Survey Results: 55% giving $500 or less this year

So far more than 1,400 of you have responded to BrickUnderground's holiday tipping poll since we posted it just after Thanksgiving. The results have been fairly consistent--and somewhat lower than we would have thought for a city of attended buildings.
In a nutshell:
55% of you plan to tip no more than $500 total
31% plan to distribute between $500-$1,000
8% between $1,000-$1,500
3% between $1,500-$2,000
3% more than $2,000.
As one commenter pointed out, it would have been helpful if we had correlated responses to building size (an improvement we plan to make next year). For now, here's what can be inferred: If you live in a building with very few workers, you are more than keeping up with the Joneses at $500. Similarly, if you're in a large full-service building, a total spend of $1,500 or more puts you at the top of the tipping pyramid.
