WHILE THE STATE ECONOMY HAS HIT BAD TIMES, RESIDENTS REPORT SOLID FINANCES FOR THEMSELVES
Over half of New Jerseyans say the state has hit economic “bad times,” the highest number since 1994 according to the Star-Ledger/Eagleton-Rutgers Poll. But at the same time, residents report that their own personal finances are in good shape. Fifty-seven percent say their family’s financial situation is the same as it was last year at this time, and 80 percent are satisfied with their current standard of living.

NEW JERSEYANS REPORT GOOD ECONOMIC TIMES And Expect Them To Stay That Way
Despite market fluctuations and predictions of national economic doom, Garden State residents are economically comfortable these days, and they plan to stay that way. Two-thirds of residents feel the state is in economic good times, according to a recent Star-Ledger/Eagleton- Rutgers Poll, and eight in ten are at least somewhat satisfied with their current standard of living. On neither of these fronts do New Jerseyans expect major changes – most say their personal financial conditions and those of the state economy will stay about the same in the coming year.
