Thirty-nine percent of Lithuanians feel anxiety about their financial situation every day, a survey has found.
The anxiety adversely affects relations with family members, health and productivity at work, they said.
One in six respondents reported feeling no anxiety about their financial situation and 7 percent said they were fully satisfied with their finances, according to the survey commissioned by the Institute of Finance at Swedbank Lithuania.
“A mere 7 percent of respondents are absolutely satisfied, happy and calm about their financial situation, but twice as many, 14 percent, are completely dissatisfied,” Jūratė Cvilikienė, the institute’s head, told reporters on Thursday.
Forty-three percent of the respondents identified work as the key cause of stress in their lives, and 30 percent believe that worrying about money negatively affects their relations with family.
The pollster Norstat surveyed 1,000 people aged 18 to 75 on August 14–25.
