For our Financial Wellness Census, Prudential talked to over 3,000 people about their financial health. They fell into four categories: confident, idealistic, pessimistic, discouraged.
We found that about half of the country is struggling to manage day-to-day and plan for the future.
Of those who are the most behind, nearly a third think they are actually in good shape.
Of those that are doing well more than a quarter remain anxious about their finances.
- confident 33%
