CFPB financial well-being report
Yesterday, the CFPB issued a report with state-by-state comparisons of financial well-being scores. The scores are based on Bureau analysis of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority Foundation’s 2018 National Financial Capability Study. The report shows that the average financial well-being scores for all adults (ages 18 and older) in the United States ranged from a low of 50 in Mississippi to a high of 54 in California, the District of Columbia and Hawaii. For the United States, the average financial well-being score was 52.
The report also examines financial well-being by age groups and how those scores vary by state. The average financial well-being score for younger and middle age adults (ages 18 to 61) in the United States was 49 in 2018. During this same period, the financial well-being score for older adults (ages 62 and older) was 62.
