Economic Security Improves in 2012

The latest Economic Security Index shows household economic security making gains in 2012. The percentage of households that lost at least one-quarter of their income in 2012 fell slightly, to 17.8 percent. This figure is down from 18.9 percent in 2011 and the record high of 20.5 percent in 2009.

On the Economic Security Index web site, you can compare states, examine trends over the past quarter century, and download reports for individual states.
