How Millennials Want to Work and Live
May 10-12 — Omaha, Nebraska

Sixty-five percent of Americans now prefer saving money to spending it, continuing a trend that started after the 2008 financial crisis. The percentage who say they are spending less tops the percentage saying they are spending more.

Thirty-five percent of Americans favor real estate as the best long-term investment choice, a four-percentage-point gain from last year that moves it further ahead of stocks (22%), gold (17%), savings accounts (15%) and bonds (7%).

Fifty-one percent of U.S. adults believe the job market in the city or area where they live is good for job seekers. Those employed full time and nonwhites are far more likely to think that now is a good time to find a good job.

Lydia Saad, senior editor at Gallup, will lead the Webinar "Analyzing Gallup's Economic Confidence Index".
