We are all faced with making financial decisions daily. Yet, many of us feel uncertain about the decisions we make. To show how common this feeling is, we decided to investigate personal finances research. What we found was unsettling—but not surprising. According to several US financial literacy surveys, findings showed:
- 53% of adults are financially anxious.
- 78% of adults live paycheck to paycheck.
- Four in five youths failed a financial literacy quiz.
- 27 states scored a C, D, or F for high school financial literacy.
- 60% of adults had credit card debt in the past year.
- Fewer than one in five adults is confident in savings.
