Economic insecurity: Americans’ concerns about their jobs, personal finances, retirement, health costs, housing, and more
December 2013

A couple preparing for retirement review their finances with an adviser.

In this AEI Public Opinion Study, we bring together existing questions from many pollsters about the subjects described in the title above to get a sense of how anxious or economically insecure Americans feel.
