WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Bureau released the first results from the Making Ends Meet survey today. The results provide a deeper understanding of how often U.S. consumers have difficulty making ends meet and how they cope with financial shortfalls.
Key results from the survey
The survey is weighted to be nationally representative of consumers with a credit record. The survey is part of the Bureau's statutory mission to conduct research on markets for consumer financial products and services, the experiences and access to credit for traditionally underserved communities, and consumer understanding and choice of products, among other things.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is a 21st century agency that helps consumer finance markets work by regularly identifying and addressing outdated, unnecessary, or unduly burdensome regulations, by making rules more effective, by consistently enforcing federal consumer financial law, and by empowering consumers to take more control over their economic lives.For more information, visitconsumerfinance.gov.
