The demographics and interest category information in Google Analytics comes from:

  • The Adwords first-party cookies
  • Information that you upload from your CRM
  • Survey data filled out by users
  • The DoubleClick third-party cookie
  • Google Tag Manager

The Correct Answer is:

  •  The DoubleClick third-party cookie
