The Genworth Index (volume 5): Measuring Consumer Financial Security and Vulnerability

David A Hayes, Andrea D Finney

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


The Genworth Index has been developed to provide a clear and robust picture of households' general financial situations in the countries in which those households live.

This edition of the Index tracks consumer financial security and vulnerability in 14 countries in Europe, five in Latin America, as well as China, in a survey of over 13,000 households. For the first time, the Index aims to explain what drives consumers' feelings of financial security and vulnerability by asking households to select their top three concerns for the future financial security of their household, e.g. income from work, job security, the wider economy, levels of savings, consumer borrowing, social security available etc.
