Ask anyone who works as a waiter, waitress or bartender and they’ll tell you how vital tips are to their income, yet time and time again people can be super cheap when adding a gratuity for a job well done. But there are certainly some people out there who are more generous when it comes to showing gratitude, and a new report reveals just who those people are. 

According to CreditCards.com, the best tippers are men, Republicans, northeasterners and credit/debit card users, all of whom tip a median of 20% at restaurants. As for other demographics, women tip about 16%, while Democrats, southerners and cash users only top about 15%.

In general, about 50% of those who tip at restaurants tip between 16% and 20%, with 11% to 15% the second most popular range. And believe it or not, 20% of people of restaurant goers say they occasionally leave no tip at all.
