Survey | Economic Insecurity, Rising Inequality, and Doubts about the Future: Findings from the 2014 American Values Survey

Roughly 4-in-10 Americans say they are currently in excellent (7%) or good (34%) shape financially, while a majority of the public report being in only fair (37%) or poor financial shape (20%). This assessment represents a notable drop from 2010, when half of Americans indicated they were in excellent (9%) or good (41%) shape financially.
