The Pulse relies on generous support from our funders, partners, and advisors.

The U.S. Financial Health Pulse is supported by the Citi Foundation.

The Financial Health Network is partnering with USC's Dornsife Center for Economic and Social Research to field the survey to their online panel, the Understanding America Study.

Study participants who agree to share their transactional and account data use Plaid's data connectivity services to authorize their data for analysis.
