A National Resource to Support Excellence in Community Action

Nebraska Survey on Financial Behaviors and Practices

Community Action of Nebraska conducted a Community Assessment Survey from May 5 – May 31, 2011.  Surveys were mailed to 10,000 residents all across Nebraska targeting adults ages 19-44.

The purpose of this survey was to increase our understanding of financial decisions Nebraskans make and to assess their knowledge and general attitudes about money.  Community Action Agencies in Nebraska will use the results to evaluate and revise their financial literacy and educational programs and services to better fit the needs of their communities.

This focus survey report complements the more comprehensive 2010 State and Regional Community Assessment, as well as future documents developed by Community Action of Nebraska.

The assessment survey asked questions covering a wide range of topics including: financial behaviors, financial services and resources, and planning for the future. In terms of content, the survey focused on issues related to finance, for example: setting financial goals and managing household assets, use of financial services, levels of debt, and behaviors/attitudes related to spending and saving.

The report consists of the following sections:
