BACKGROUND: Prudential's latest study, African American Financial Experience, is part of a series of signature research focused on learning more about the financial practices and literacy of multicultural markets. Prudential partnered with GfK Public Affairs & Corporate Communications to conduct the survey from March 7th to 19th, 2013. The study was conducted among 1,153 African-American respondents between the ages of 25-70 with household incomes of $25,000 or more and who have primary or some level of shared responsibility for household financial decisions. An oversample of 471 U.S. adults was also obtained as a reference point. The General Population sample met the same screening criteria as the African-American sample. A quota was applied in order to obtain at least 300 African-Americans and 100 of the General Population with a household income of $75,000 or more. Results were then weighted according to the U.S. Census to reflect the proper proportions of African Americans and the general population within each of these income groups. The first African American Financial Experience survey was conducted in 2011. Other research in the series includes focuses on women and the LGBT community.
