New research shows there is greater interest among Americans in personal savings.
America Saves discloses this finding in its new Personal Savings Index. The PSI is based on a survey of more than 1,000 representative adult Americans, which asked them questions about “personal saving related to goals ranging from an emergency fund to retirement.”
The survey shows that there is greater interest in personal saving, with an aggregate average score of 71 percent, than in saving effort made, at 62 percent. Both scores exceed the score for perceived effectiveness of saving at 58 percent.
