Join the authors of the recently released 2020 Trends Report to understand how financial health has changed against the backdrop of the evolving COVID-19 pandemic.
Using nationally representative survey results and new transactional data, the authors will explore the following key findings from the report:
- As of August 2020, 33% of people in America were Financially Healthy, an increase from 29% in 2019
- Two-thirds of people are not Financially Healthy, and many of these individuals are experiencing extreme financial hardship in the midst of the ongoing pandemic
- Financial health disparities have widened by race and income, and have persisted across gender over the past year
- Black Americans, people with low incomes, and women are bearing a disproportionate share of the economic burden of the pandemic
