Young and In Debt Poll

In an exclusive six-week series from Nov. 20 to Dec. 29, 2006, the National Endowment for Financial Education and USA TODAY® launched a study of the twenty-something generation titled “Young & In Debt,” which found that young adults are facing significant challenges in managing their money and their debt. The series paired five different young people with financial planners to give them—and readers—advice on maintaining order in their financial lives, while providing helpful tips on paying off debt, establishing a budget and saving for the future.

A national survey conducted by The Gallup Organization exploring the top concerns of young adults ages 22 to 29 has been released in conjunction with the “Young & In Debt” series. To view the full results of the poll, click here.
