NextImg:Minority of adults say are confident they can keep up with expenses

Many adults across the United States continue to struggle financially, with only a fraction of them confident they can keep up with their expenses.

A total of only 29% of adults are confident they are able to keep up with their expenses, compared to 41% who are somewhat confident and 29% who are either not very or not at all confident. The percentage of adults confident they can keep up financially with their expenses has decreased from October 2021, when this percentage was at 45%, according to the poll conducted by the Associated Press and the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.
