Zogby Interactive: U.S. Adults Struggle To Keep Up With Economic Changes

Released: August 27, 2009


UTICA, New York - Large numbers of U.S. adults can't keep up with economic changes and have seen their finances and quality of life decline since the start of the recession that started in 2008.

  • 44% said the economy is changing faster than they are able to change their habits. 
  • Only 12% are better off now than they were at the start of the recession. 
  • 42% report that their quality of life has declined over that same period, and only 7% say it has improved. The rest, 51%, have had no change or are not sure.
Those conclusions are drawn from a Zogby Interactive survey of 41,175 adults conducted from July 2-27, 2009. The margin of error is +/- 0.5%.

Household income is the most consistent difference on all three questions. For example, 41% of those in households making $25,000 or less say they can't keep up. A plurality of all adults making $75,000 or more says they are keeping up.
