Survey on Personal Finance Important Topics

The goal of this survey is to gather information on important topics in personal finance. While your participation in this survey is voluntary, your response will greatly help in designing personal finance programs to meet the public's needs. All of the questions are OPTIONAL. This survey is conducted by eXtension’s Financial Security for All Community of Practice, a virtual community led by twelve Extension professionals from across the country. The group has over 260 members from Land Grant Universities in 44 states and one territory. More information about the group and collaboration efforts is available at: http://www.extension.org/pages/12903/financial-security-for-all-community-page . There are no known risks to you to take this survey. You must be at least 18 or older (19 or older in Nebraska and Alabama) to participate. Your answers to the questions are anonymous. Any reports prepared will be released only as summaries in which no individual's answers can be identified. This survey is voluntary. You are free to decide not to participate and can withdraw at any time without harming your relationship with the researchers or institutions involved. This survey is approved by the University of Nebraska Institutional Review Board (#20110811872 EX).
