Insight: Young People and Money has been published by Young Scot. Between 22nd August and 1st October 2018, Young Scot worked with Standard Life Aberdeen to gather insight into young people’s thoughts and experiences of money, saving for the future and debt. 255 young people completed the survey.
The survey findings suggest that the respondents have a varying experience of money matters depending on their circumstances. The age of respondents produced differing results regarding what they spend money on, what they would spend on if they earned more money, whether or not they were currently in debt, and whether they know enough about managing money.
