How We Can Help

Financial Health Research

Since launching the Financial Health Pulse in 2018, the Financial Health Network has measured the financial health of Americans through our annual Trends Report. These yearly reports provide a nuanced look at how financial health serves as an economic indicator for the country at large. In addition, the Financial Health Pulse offers regular snapshots on the most pressing financial health issues of the moment, from pandemic-related challenges to stimulus check spending.
