Youth 1974: Finance-Related Attitudes. Report on the Institute's Third Biennial Survey of Americans Ages 14 through 25.
Institute of Life Insurance, New York, NY.
The probability sample for this national survey of youth's attitudes included 2,510 young people between the ages of 14 and 25 years. Results indicate that at the start of the 1970's there was a major turn about in attitudes. The fast changing attitudes of the 1960's seem to have been replaced by a more stable and conservative set of views and values. Young people have grown quite serious and more conventional. Interest in the youth counterculture has declined while there is a growing interest in executive and professional lifestyles. Data are included on youth's attitudes toward money, consumerism, life insurance, life insurance companies, responsibility for financial well-being, alternative lifestyles, marriage and the family, work, and careers.
