An understanding of how American households make financial decisions is needed to inform the content and format of financial education programs and public policy. The work of NC 2172 through 9/30/18 will focus on exploring consumer financial decision-making across the lifespan with a focus on three specific decisions related to housing, post-secondary education financing, and the claiming of Social Security benefits at retirement. The NC 2172 research team will use a mixed methods research design, including online surveys and convenience samples, to obtain relevant data. Motivators and barriers in the household financial decision-making process will be explored.
