Financial Lives survey interactive UK maps

The Financial Lives survey allows us to analyse various data by UK nations and by English regions. The survey allows us to understand how product holding, attitudes and engagement with financial service providers differ by region.

Our most recent geographic analysis calls on the results from the Financial Lives 2020 survey and our Covid-19 panel survey. We map out at Government Office Region (GOR) level:

  • Map 1: The proportion of adults who in October 2020 say their financial situation has worsened as a result of Covid-19
  • Map 2: The proportion of adults who in October 2020 expect to struggle to make ends meet, see their debt levels increase, or are not confident of being able to pay their domestic bills or meet their mortgage, rent or credit commitments in the next six months
  • Map 3: The proportion of adults aged 55+, or younger and have a health condition or illness lasting or expected to last for 12 months or longer, who in February 2020 said they find it difficult to get to a bank, building society or credit union
