One of our goals is to better understand the relationship people have with money and how it impacts their lives. This includes routine daily decisions that are made, and the ones around some of life’s biggest moments.
In June, for example, we surveyed more than 1,000 Americans about the topic of wedding season. Why? Weddings can be expensive, whether you’re planning your own, helping to pay for one or simply attending a wedding.
What do we do with this type of survey data?
A few things. For one, these responses provide valuable insights in terms of content, tools and products we may be able to create for our customers.
We often share some of these findings with the media as well as in our own blogs because there’s power (and comfort) in knowing there are others who may be faced with similar situations and choices.
These are some of the survey statistics that stood out to us.
The “Summer Spending Wedding” Survey was conducted by Marcus by Goldman Sachs® in June 2019 among 1,501 Americans.
