Pick up best practices for managing finances, from budgeting for all types of households to dealing with income challenges.

For a second consecutive year, OppU commissioned an online survey through Pollfish to interview 800 U.S. household financial decision-makers regarding their budgeting practices and attitudes towards managing their finances. Fieldwork was undertaken on April 12th, 2021. Respondents ranged from ages 18 to 64. Each of the four census regions were equally represented. The data was weighted to ensure proportional representation of U.S. consumers by age and geography. Margin-of-error is 3.46%, at a 95% confidence level, meaning if the study were repeated, 95 out of 100 times, results would range about 4% in either direction.
