Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v111 n3 p31-37 Sep 2019
This study examined associations between positive financial behaviors and positive health behaviors. Participants (n 8,128) completed an online survey about their frequency of performance of recommended practices.A multiple regression analysis was used to predict participants' health behavior score based on their emergency fund, saving, and investing behaviors, as well as their gender, age, and income. Results of this study suggest that those who are female and of a higher age and income are more likely to engage regularly in health promoting behaviors. Moreover, results suggest having a positive cash flow has more influence on engaging in health promoting behaviors, relative to maintaining an emergency fund, saving, and investing
