Financial Security and Mobility

Pew’s financial security and mobility project studied the financial well-being of American families and how their balance sheets relate to both short-term financial stability and longer-term economic mobility.

The initiative built on Pew research that showed savings and assets are key to moving up the economic ladder, both within a lifetime and across generations. The project's goal was to foster policy debate and action on how best to improve opportunity to ensure that the American Dream is within reach of everyone.
