Pink piggy bank, BBVA

Abstract

This report presents findings from the second annual U.S. Financial Health Pulse, which is designed to explore how the financial health of people in America is changing over time.

At the national level, we find that only 29% of Americans are Financially Healthy in 2019, up just one point from a year ago. Despite relatively stable headline statistics, however, we observe significant year-over-year fluctuations within the disaggregateddata, revealing important shifts in financial health indicators, across demographic groups, and among individuals.
