Our June 24, 2019 survey asked our embers for their age category, citizenship and response about their main source of financial stress.
By the end of June 25, we received responses from 53% of our subscribers. (Average response rates to surveys are 10% – 15%.)
Of those who responded:
- 63% were between 50 and 70 years old.
- 24% were between 30 and 50 years old.
- 8% were 30 years or younger.
- 5% were over 70 and/or retired.
