The Albuquerque Journal published an article on 4/1/15, page B1, about our state being rated near the bottom of all US states in terms of financial literacy. It considered the following variables:
% of people with a “rainy day fund” – we ranked 49th
% of “unbanked” households – we ranked 43rd
% of people who pay the minimum on credit card bills – we ranked 46th
And % of people who compare credit cards before applying – we ranked 41st
The most financially literate states were New Hampshire, Utah, and Massachusetts, while Louisiana, Arkansas, nevada, and Mississippi ranked below us.
Also according to the Wallet Hub study cited, only 2 in 5 adults have a budget.
